Thermo Fisher Scientific publishes application note on improving mercury detection in fish

22nd January 2009

Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced it has published an application note detailing how its technology can improve the detection of mercury in fish.

Using the company’s iCE 3000 Series AA spectrometers and VP100 vapour generation accessory, researchers can now "accurately detect trace levels" of the poisonous metal in the product.

The spectrometers are able to reach limits of detection of 0.014 mg/kg, which meets all current international guidance, while the VP100 accessory enables sample analysis to take place every 90 seconds, people in science sales jobs may be interested to know.

Using the technologies in tandem can be easier and more cost-effective than other techniques such as GC-ICP-MS and HPLC-ICP-MS, a statement from Thermo Fisher Scientific claims.

Details on instrument conditions, sample preparation and the reagents required to make precise analyses are included in the application note – called Accurate Analysis of low Levels of Mercury in Fish by Hydride Generation AA – which is available from Thermo Fisher’s website.

This week, the company also announced a global programme of rheology and specialist seminars for 2009.ADNFCR-1050-ID-18986133-ADNFCR
