Abstract: In this article, a simple, economic, and miniature flow analyzer for ammonium in seawater based on the solenoid micropumps is presented. A single reagent of sodium tetraborate, ortho-phthaldialdehyde (OPA), and sodium sulfite was used and optimized applying the modified SIMPLEX method. A special-made detection cell for fluorescence detection of the reaction product isoindol-1-sulfonat was made and combined with a commercial photomultiplier tube, a long-pass optical filter, and an UV-LED as excitation light source. A LOD down to 13 nmol/L was achieved. The fabrication and application of a miniature reaction coil heating device for reaction rate enhancement is further described. The system featured an injection frequency of 32 h-1 at average standard deviation of 3%. © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
