Mercury Analytical Laboratory

Our Mercury Analytical Laboratory is internationally recognized for its unique ability to conduct ultra-trace level measurements of both mercury (Hg) and monomethyl mercury (MMHg) in sediments, water, biological tissue, and other matrices. This lab can also conduct mercury speciation measurements. Mercury analyses use both atomic fluorescence spectrometry and atomic absorption spectrometry.
