MA-3000 Direct thermal decomposition mercury analyzer

Nippon Instruments Corporation (NIC) has published a new informational video describing measurement of mercury in liquids, solids, and gases using direct thermal decomposition. The video highlights the capabilities and operation of the NIC MA-3000 mercury analyzer.

The MA-3000 analyzer is a dedicated direct mercury analyzer that selectively measures total mercury by thermal decomposition, gold amalgamation and cold vapor atomic absorption spectroscopy, on virtually any sample matrix. It was developed to meet the need for equipment that is easy to use and does not require wet pretreatment, offering a state-of–the-art solution for rapid, complete ultra-trace quantitative determination of mercury.

The video presents the principle of cold vapor atomic absorption spectroscopy, where monochromatic light is attenuated by mercury vapor in a measurement cell, and describes the technological innovations and operational features that enable the instrument to analyze mercury down to levels of less than one picogram.

The video is currently available on the NIC YouTube channel.

About Nippon Instruments Corporation
