Mercury Analyzer

Description: The mercury analyzer is used to determine mercury concentrations in liquid and solid samples. The DMA-80 is based on the principles of sample thermal decomposition, mercury amalgamation and atomic absorption detection. 

Analytical Method: Mercury in liquids and solids is analyzed by thermal decomposition, amalgamation and atomic absorption spectrometry using EPA Method 7473. Samples must be stored at 4ºC.

Sample submission: Water samples may be submitted to the water quality laboratory chemist for analysis.
