Attogene’s Mercury Lateral Flow Kit can be used for the screening of Mercury in water and food (fish) samples at 10 ppb in a laboratory setting.  Unlike the field-based kit, the lab kit is intended for a more technical end user who will be evaluating samples in a laboratory setting.  The instructions include method for extraction from food samples.

Mercury contamination is a serious worldwide environmental problem. As it is difficult to detoxify by chemical or biological methods, gradual Mercury ion accumulation in the nervous and cardiovascular systems of the human body can subsequently cause serious diseases.   Long-term health consequences of drinking Mercury-contaminated food and water include brain, heart, kidney, lungs  and immune system problems for adults, and the physical and mental development delays in infants and children.  Attogene’s Mercury Lateral Flow test gives results conforming of 10ppb or greater.  Using the supplied pipette, simply fill the vial with your water sample, place the water into the sample port and wait 5 minutes.
