CO-83-B-2 – View in Room 111, atomic absorption beryllium analysis laboratory. Air filters and swipes are dissolved with acids, and the remaining residues are suspended in nitric acid solution. The solution is processed through the atomic absorption spectrophotometer to detect the presence and levels of beryllium.
