Atomic Absorption (AA) Spectroscopy

Simple, automated, single element analysis by flame or graphite furnace AAS from ppb to %

The iCE 3000 Series AAS enables simple measurement of elements in a wide range of samples. The flame atomizer is ideal for the measurement of high concentration samples, whilst the furnace atomizer achieves sub ppb detection. The dual atomizer system with Stockdale optics incorporates advanced background correction with a unique quadline deuterium source and optional Zeeman correction to ensure accurate analysis.

Flame analysis

The most commonly used technique, flame AAS is compact, cost-effective, and highly suited to liquid or dissolved samples containing target analytes. As only a small portion of the sample ultimately arrives at the flame due to the aerosolizing process, flame AAS provides a relatively high interference removal, resulting in reliable accuracy. Ideal for trace elemental determination in the mg L−1 range and lower for some elements. The iCE 3000 Series AAS flame instruments provide ideal analysis solutions for laboratories requiring wide detection capability for over 60 elements and enable rapid, robust and reliable analysis.

  • Self-calibrating monochromator and auto-aligning lamps ensure optimum light throughput for maximum sensitivity
  • Robust burner offers extended analysis when analyzing challenging samples
  • Fully automatic gas control ensures repeatable flame conditions and safety
  • Flame optimization routines incorporated into daily analysis ensure parameters are optimal

Furnace analysis

A highly robust technique, furnace AAS is capable of analyzing low volume liquid samples. Ideal for labs handling complex matrices on a routine basis, it provides very efficient interference removal, resulting in sensitivity of several orders of magnitude higher than flame AAS, enabling trace elemental determination in the low μg L−1 range and lower for some elements

The dedicated furnace atomizers of the iCE 3000 Series AAS allow for unattended analysis of low concentration samples. The analysis is simplified by a wizard driven workflow which guides the user through the process of method development, ensuring optimal parameters for a specific analysis.

  • Integrated Graphite Furnace Television (GFTV) enables vital information to be gathered on sample injection and allows optimization
  • Configure how standards, samples and modifiers are used and located in the autosampler to suit your workflow
  • Automatic optical control of the cuvette heating ensures repeatable heating, eliminating drift
  • Extended life and platform cuvettes ensure maximum cuvette life-time for your sample type
