ALS Scandinavia offers mercury isotope analysis of 199Hg, 200Hg, 201Hg and 202Hg. Analysis of mercury isotope ratios is useful in a variety of fields including:
- Pollution source tracing
- Exposure source tracing
The analysis of mercury (Hg) isotopes is typically carried out by MC-ICP-SFMS (multicollector ICP-SFMS). ALS Scandinavia has developed a matrix separation method that can be applied on prior to analysis for significantly improved measurement uncertainty.
Research - Mercury isotope analysis
Our isotope research is done in close co-operation with several external institutions, particularly the Divisions of Applied Geology and Chemistry at Luleå University of Technology.
