After the Arsenic Test Kit's instructions for boiling a sample to incorporate organic Arsenic into the test results, is it necessary to return the volume to 50 mL?

Arsenic Test Kit modification to include organic arsenic
Answer
No, increasing the volume after boiling is not necessary. The remainder of the test involves generating arsine gas and purging it from the sample, so the volume of liquid after the boiling steps is not important.
