From Dr. Richard Sauerheber

Fluoride levels are here reported for the public interest. A LaMotte Instruments electronic fluoride electrode meter was used to measure the free fluoride ion. (Some measurements shown employed a Hannah Instruments colorimetric photometer which likely measures fluoride from hydrofluoric acid HF, as well as the free ion).
