Mercury levels are being scrutinized to levels never before possible. With careful planning and specialized techniques, Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories Environmental is able to obtain mercury concentrations in the sub parts per trillion by utilizing EPA Method 1631, Revision E.
Used for the determination of mercury in unfiltered water by oxidation, purge and trap, desorption and cold-vapor atomic fluorescence spectrometry (CVASF), this method is also offered for the determination of low-level mercury in aqueous samples ranging from groundwater to sewage effluent.
One of the most challenging aspects of low-level mercury analysis is to control sample contamination during collection, shipping and analysis. To limit contamination during analysis, we have developed a custom system enclosure that allows air to circulate through HEPA filters.
