Instruments - Analytical

Perkin-Elmer FIMS-400 Atomic Absorption Spectrometer

Composed of:

  • Flow Injection Mercury System
  • 106 site autosampler
  • WinLab 32 software

The FIMS-400 is capable of detecting total mercury in the ppb range. Elemental mercury is delivered to the detector by a carrier gas and measured by cold vapor atomic absorption.

Current Applications:

  • Total mercury

Extended Capabilities:

  • Determination of hydride-forming elements when coupled with AA or ICP.

Sample matrices:

  • Soil
  • Water
  • Tissue
