Polybottles for TraceMetal Grade Acids and BaseTraceMetal Grade Acids and Bases: Now Packaged in Poly Bottles

Fisher Chemical high-purity acids and bases have set the standard of excellence for demanding applications involving TraceMetal analysis in diverse fields, such as environmental testing and electronics research. Popular instrument systems, such as atomic absorption spectroscopy (AA) and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), require samples prepared with the the highest purity acids in order to carry out exacting measurements of TraceMetal content. Selected Fisher Chemical TraceMetal grade acids and bases are now available in poly bottles.

Benefits and features:

  • Up to 80 percent fewer metallic extractables compared to glass bottles
  • Sub-ppb-range metal concentrations due to proprietary distillation techniques
  • Lighter, safer and easier handling in the laboratory and limited to no breakage during transportation
