|National Institute for Minamata Disease studies on the mercury-pollution
in developing countries. Hair is clearly the most suitable material for
estimation of methylmercury exposure.
We collect hair samples of inhabitants living in a doubtful mercury-polluted
area in developing countries to determine the mercury content.
Mercury content in hair will be analyzed by a flameless atomic absorption
spectrometer in the institute and the mercury data will be sent to you
We also need the identification number, sex and age of a participant, and
Please send us hair samples prepared according to an attached paper"INSTRUCTIONS FOR HAIR SAMPLING".
We use the hair samples only for mercury determination.
