Question: What lab tests are available for hydrogen sulfide, and how much do they cost?

@sara mentioned a $35 test at a Harvard lab and an XRF or X-ray Fluorescence test - what kinds of tests are available to detect or measure H2S and how much do they cost?

Here's something that looks like 2 tests for $30 (page is a little light on information beyond that)

@sara and @gretchengehrke have mentioned the "Corrosion Coupon" badge which uses both copper and silver -- I posted a question looking for some more information about it here: https://publiclab.org/questions/warren/01-09-2018/is-there-more-information-on-the-corrosion-coupon-hydrogen-sulfide-test-kit -- any help appreciated!

Sounds like that was $100?

Could someone double check on xrf for h2s? Xrf works on electrons closest to the nucleus. It could detect sulfur, but not h2s unless paired with something else.
