Latex gloves are used in clean room environments in order to prevent contaminations. The use of gloves that release corrosive halogenides or sulfate is forbidden in nuclear power plants. The total content of halogen and sulfur is determined by means of Combustion Ion Chromatography. An eluate test is carried out to check the elutable percentage of halogens and sulfate from gloves. Sample preparation is comprised of preconcentration and matrix elimination (MiPCT-ME), as described in AN-S-304.
