Both soils and P-fertilisers were digested in concentrated nitric acid according to the method of Zhang and Shan (1997) and Cd and REEs (Ce, Dy [Dysprosium], Er [Erbium], Eu [Europium], Gd [Gadolinium], Ho [Holmium], La, Lu, Nd [Neodymium], Pr [Praseodymium], Sm [Samarium], Tb [Terbium], Th [Thorium], Tm [Thylium] and Yb [Ytterbium]) measured with an Inductively Coupled Plasma Optimal Emission Spectrophotometer (ICP-OES) with a Cetac
U5000AT ultra sonic nebulizer.
Mercury in air samples was analyzed by CETAC
M6000A cold-vapor atomic absorption spectrometer (CVAAS) mercury analyzer.

US electronic subsystems maker Teledyne Technologies Inc (NYSE:TDY) said its unit Teledyne Instruments Inc had completed the purchase of domestic automated sample handling equipment maker SD Acquisition Inc, operating under the name CETAC
LSX-213 solid- state 213 nm wavelength laser ablation system coupled to a Varian 810 quadrupole ICPMS was used to collect the U-Th-Pb data which is listed in Table 1.
The ICPMS was equipped with a collision/reaction cell system, an ASX-510 autosampler (CETAC
, Nebraska, USA), an integrated sample introduction system (ISIS) and a Mira Mist nebulizer (Burgener Research Inc, Ontario, Canada).
The LA-ICP-MS instrumentation consisted of a laser ablation system (213-nm Nd:YAG; Cetac
Technologies, Omaha, NE) connected to a Perkin Elmer ELAN DRC II ICP-MS (Perkin Elmer, Norwalk, CT).
Mercury analysis was conducted using a CETAC
Quick Trace Mercury Analyzer M-6100 cold vapor atomic absorption Hg analyzer with an ASX-400 AutoSampler.
We analyzed Cd concentration in liver and kidney, the main organs of accumulation, using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (Agilent 7500ce; Agilent Technologies, Waldbronn, Germany) with a collision/reaction cell system autosampler (Cetac
Technologies, Omaha, NE, USA), an integrated sample introduction system, and a MicroMist nebulizer (Agilent Technologies, Waldbronn, Germany) in quartz (Kippler et al.
For the past six months, the Technical Council of the Civil Aviation Authority (CETAC
), whose parent entity is MOPT, and Alterra, whose parent entity is Bechtel, a British conglomerate, had been trying to hammer out an agreement that would satisfy both sides.
Technologies, through their Automation division, provides a variety of autosamplers, liquid handling systems and OEM services.
