Attogene’s Mercury Lateral Flow Kit can be used for the screening of Mercury in water samples at 10 ppb in the field.
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.
