Colloidal Silver | Silver Colloids

How is “total silver” concentration determined?

The total amount of silver that is reported as the silver concentration (in parts per million) is the sum total of the silver contained in the particles and the silver contained in the silver ions. Accurate measurement of total silver content requires the measurement by either atomic absorption or atomic emission of the silver atoms. An Atomic Absorption/Emission Spectrophotometer is typically used for accurate results.
