Atomic absorption spectroscopy (or AA spectroscopy) is a technique used in analytical chemistry protocols. Using an atomic absorption spectrometer, you can determine the concentration of many different elements in a sample. The spectrometer identifies the amount of metal in liquids and measures the quality of metal in a sample as well.
Many industrial and research laboratories consider AA spectroscopy crucial to their processes. Spectrometers with low detection limits and rapid testing methods are ideal for:
- Environmental testing
- Quality control
The atomic absorption spectrometer market features standard and advanced models. Advanced microprocessor models may include expanded firmware capabilities, built-in deuterium, and self-reversal background correction (which compensates for organics present in sample matrix).
Look for a combination of stable beam optical system and a higher sensitivity to enable fast, accurate analysis. Increased burner sensitivity makes an instrument ideal for testing far-UV elements, such as arsenic and selenium.
