AULA-254 Automatic Laboratory Mercury Analyzer


The AULA-254 Gold is a fully automated system for analyzing traces of mercury in aqueous and digested samples

In contrast to a typical multi-element AAS the AULA is specially designed for mercury determination. The use of a highly stable low-pressure electrodeless mercury discharge lamp (EDL) in connection with the latest UV detector techniques result in excellent baseline stability and low detection limits.


The AULA-254 Gold system meets current regulations, with capacity in reserve to meet more stringent standards.
