Potassium
Sampling & Analysis

Potassium comes in the form of a silvery-white or gray metal.  It is used in the manufacture of fertilizer, gunpowder/explosives, and in combination with other elements, is used in medications.  It is an important trace nutrient for humans, and can be found in many foods (bananas, orange juice, potatoes, tomato paste).

The substance enters the body through inhalation, ingestion, or skin/eye contact.  It can cause deep and severe burns in the eyes and on the skin; it can cause coughing and a burning sensation in the respiratory tract, as well as burning of the stomach, shock and collapse.
