    QuickTrace™ M-8000 Mercury Analyzer

    The QuickTrace™ M-8000 Cold Vapor Atomic Fluorescence mercury analyzer is ideal for ultra-trace to sub-ppm mercury quantitation.

    The QuickTrace™ M-8000 mercury analyzer easily achieves the ultra-trace mercury detection limit of < 0.05 ppt demanded by customers employing EPA method 1631. The QuickTrace™ M-8000 is also versatile enough to analyze samples > 400 ppb without dilution.

    Depending on your laboratory’s requirements, the QuickTrace™ M-8000 mercury analyzer supports three modes of operation:

    Mode 1: Cold Vapor Atomic Fluorescence Spectroscopy (CVAFS)

    Mode 2: Cold Vapor Atomic Fluorescence Spectroscopy Single Gold Trap Amalgamation (CVAFS-SGTA)

    Mode 3: Cold Vapor Atomic Fluorescence Spectroscopy Double Gold Trap Amalgamation (CVAFS-DGTA)

    The standard QuickTrace™ M-8000 supports all three modes; the QuickTrace™ M-8000 NG supports only Mode 1. The mode can be changed in software, without hardware or tubing configuration changes.

    Why is it so important to have a system that switches between ultra trace analysis and low ppm analysis with only the opening of a new method? These innovative features save you set up time and eliminate costly mistakes.

    We also employ cost saving features during the gold trap desorption such as shutting down the flowing rinse and slowing the SnCl2 flow. These innovative features can save the laboratory thousands of dollars per year by reducing reagent and waste costs.

    Using the proven cold vapor atomic fluorescence (CVAF) technique combined with multi-tasking Windows® based QuickTrace™ software package, the QuickTrace™ M-8000 is one of the most stable reliable fluorescence analyzer available today.

    Testimonials

    "The CETAC M-8000 mercury instrument is certainly the most robust well engineered mercury instrument I have ever seen.  It's hardware components have been selected without compromise.  The software is equally well done and very easy to use.  I am glad to see a company run by quality oriented scientists and not penny pinching MBA's."

    Performance


    Excellent short and long term stability are found in our QuickTrace™ M-8000 CVAF analyzer. Less than 0.02 ppt instrument detection limits are typical for the QuickTrace™ M-8000 gold trap modes utilizing less than 25 ml of sample. We consistently achieve non-gold trap instrument detection limits of less than 0.1 ppt utilizing less than 10 ml of sample.

    • Ultra-trace detection limits (< 0.05 ppt IDL)
    • Linearity greater than 4 orders of magnitude
    • Dynamic range < 0.05 ppt to > 400 ppb
    • In Mode 1 by response comparison to a 100 ppt standard, the system exhibits < 0.01% memory effect of a 1 ppm standard immediately following the ingestion of a 1 part per million (ppm) sample.
    • In Mode 1 without
    • employing our smart rinse technology the system is ready to accurately measure a sample within four minutes following the ingestion of a 1 ppm sample
    • Mode 2 & 3 - Short term precision (%RSD @ 95% Confidence) < 1.7% @ 5 ppt, n=5
