Application Note: Cost savings comparison for direct mercury analysis
25 February 2022

Many laboratories are currently using traditional techniques like CV-AAS/AFS to determine the mercury content for various matrices such as soils, sediments, fish. Determination of total mercury content using these techniques or ICP-MS requires labor-intensive and time-consuming sample preparation steps, daily calibration, and could suffer from interferences and memory effects. In this application note, direct mercury analysis techniques are compared for saving costs.
