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. 

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.
