M-8000 - Teledyne Leeman Labs

CVAF Mercury Analyzer
The QuickTrace® M-8000 Cold Vapor Atomic Fluorescence
mercury analyzer (CVAF) is ideal for ultra-trace to sub-mg/L
mercury quantitation. It provides the performance and
productivity needed by today’s laboratories to meet the
tightening regulatory demands, while exceptional stability
and user defined QC sequencing allow for long periods of
unattended operation.
The QuickTrace® M-8000 mercury analyzer easily
achieves the ultra-trace mercury detection limit of
< 0.05 ng/L demanded by customers employing EPA
method 1631. The QuickTrace® M-8000 is also versatile
enough to analyze samples > 400 μg/L without dilution.
Key Features of the
QuickTrace® M-8000
The triple mode, no enrichment, single or double gold
amalgamation QuickTrace® M-8000 CVAF system from
Teledyne Leeman Labs is the system of choice for labs
wanting to meet the most stringent reporting limits for
academic research or enhanced waste discharge limits
demanded by the “Clean Water Act”.
• Non-foaming Gas Liquid Separator (GLS) with
overflow prevention system
•Automatic end of run and inactivity standby
• ≤ 0.05 ng/L instrument detection limits
• Advanced contamination control, over range and
smart rinse features
• Intuitive gas controls eliminating air infusion into
the system during sample probe movements
during mode 2 and 3 analysis
• EPA 1631 and EPA 245.7 compliant (gold
amalgamation modes)
• “Smart Rack” technology
• 12-roller 4-channel peristalic pump
• Sample volume 0.5 mL to > 50 mL
• Unlimited QC sample positions
The QuickTrace® M-8000 mercury analyzer easily achieves the
ultra-trace mercury detection limit of < 0.05 ng/L demanded
by customers employing EPA method 1631. The QuickTrace®
M-8000 is also versatile enough to analyze samples > 400 μg/L
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 (CVAF)
Mode 2: Cold Vapor Atomic Fluorescence Single Gold Trap
Amalgamation (CVAF-SGTA)
Mode 3: Cold Vapor Atomic Fluorescence Double Gold Trap
Amalgamation (CVAF-DGTA)
The QuickTrace® M-8000 modes can be changed without
hardware or tubing configuration changes.
Excellent short and long term stability are found in our
QuickTrace® M-8000 CVAF analyzer. Less than 0.02 ng/L
instrument detection limits are typical for the QuickTrace®
M-8000 gold trap modes utilizing less than 25 mL of sample.
Non-gold trap instrument detection limits of less than 0.1 ng/L
utilizing less than 10 mL of sample can be achieved.
• Ultra-trace detection limits (< 0.05 ng/L IDL)
• Linearity greater than 4 orders of magnitude
• Dynamic range < 0.05 ng/L to > 400 μg/L
• In Mode 1 by response comparison to a 100 ng/L standard,
the system exhibits < 0.01% memory effect of a 1 mg/L
standard immediately following the ingestion of a 1 part
per million (mg/L) 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 mg/L sample
• Mode 2 & 3 - Short term precision (%RSD @ 95%
Confidence) ≤ 2.5% @ 5 ng/L, n=5
For ultra-trace analysis we recommend our autosampler
enclosure to protect the samples from determinate errors
such as dust particles. The enclosure will also protect your
investment from the harsh acid gases normally present in and
around digested samples.
Gold Trap Smart Rinse
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.
EPA Methods: 245.7, 1631 and SW 846-7474. EU Methods: Din
ISO 16772, EN-12338, and ISO 17852.

operation for new users
Freedom of Choice
Teledyne Leeman Labs provides customers the freedom to choose an
autosampler for their mercury analyzer that will meet their laboratories sample
load requirements. The ASX-280 and ASX-560 autosamplers are available for
any QuickTrace™ Mercury Analyzers. Manual sampling is also available with the
option to add autosamplers as sample demand increases.
