Leeman Labs, Inc. has introduced the Hydra Prep, a new sample preparation system for mercury analysis that is designed to enhance productivity and reduce labor and sample analysis costs while providing outstanding analytical reliability. The unit automatically digests samples according to operator-selectable EPA methods. Users simply set up samples and select the protocol, and Hydra Prep performs all reagent additions and heating steps required to digest a wide variety of sample types. As an added benefit, the unit uses lower sample and reagent volumes than manual preparation, minimizing the quantity of hazardous waste generated.
