Accuracy of the test
Reputable establishments such as schools and universities are using the mercury kit in their establishments. This attest to the accuracy and
acceptability of the kit. Listing of such establishments and articles where the kit was used follows:
- University of California, Santa Barbara, CA USA - used in various experiments to develop science cirriculum for state schools;
- Kent State University, OH USA - PhD. student used mercury kit in PhD thesis project - read his statement:
"Yes, I used them in my analyses of urine and fecal samples of wild primates. It took several weeks of tweaking my
experiment in a lab here in the U.S. but I finally figured a relatively reliable method (since Hg measurement in feces was a small problem).
In the end the kits worked great, granted sometimes the fecal measurements did not always show up. This is largely in part due to specific
digestive mechanisms of some species of primates. A couple of samples turned green, which I think indicate the presence of digestive enzymes."
