The New contrAA® 600 - High Resolution Continuum Source AAS for the Graphite Furnace Technique

Sep 07 2011

With the High Resolution Continuum Source Atomic Absorption Spectrometer (HR-CS AAS) contrAA® 600, Analytik Jena AG is now offering a pure graphite furnace system (GF) with all of the benefits of the HR-CS AAS:
- Just one light source for all elements
- Unique simultaneous background correction
- New information content
- Fast! Simple! Efficient!

With the new contrAA® 600,the contrAA® family is now complete. The family already includes the contrAA® 300 for flame and hydride technique and the contrAA® 700, a compact, all-round system for flame, hydride and graphite furnace technique.

With a xenon lamp as a continuous radiation source, the entire wavelength range relevant for AAS is immediately available in the HR-CS AAS. Molecule bands can now be assessed as well. This allows additional elements, such as sulphur, phosphorus or fluorine to be analysed in the blink of an eye.

Functionality comes first with the contrAA® 600. Fully automated processes and intelligent accessories optimise the analysis process. The transversely heated graphite tube furnace and the temperature control ensure optimal atomisation conditions, precise results and a long service life of the graphite tubes.

Take advantage of the benefits of the HR-CS GF AAS in combination with the direct solid analysis technique or the HydrEA technique of Analytik Jena AG.

Solid analysis technique –solid AA®
Solid samples are analysed directly, without elaborate preparations of the samples with the help of the solid analysis technique:
- Analysis of the original sample
- Best choice for routine application
- Immediate results
- Extremely high sensitivity

The combination of hydride and graphite tube techniques opens up completely new perspectives in the detection of hydride forming elements, such as arsenic or selenium:
- Best detection limits
- Matrix-free analysis
- Minimisation of contamination problems
