MGA-1000 – Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption Spectrometer

The MGA-1000 series of graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometers integrates intuitive technology with ingenious handling.

The exclusive High-Frequency Zeeman background correction system ensures effective compensation of powerful and quickly changing spectral interferences, bringing tedious analysis of complex samples to a whole new level.

Key Technologies

  • Total and background absorptions are concurrently determined, thanks to the Zeeman High-Frequency Polarization Modulation (ZHFPM) background correction
  • Stabilized temperature platform furnace concept has been implemented
  • Electrodeless Discharge Lamps (EDL) provides low detection limits and also enables direct determination of Se and As at sub-ppb levels (without hydride generation method)
  • Major components and trace elements can be analyzed as the gas-phase dynamic dilution system expands the applications lists
  • Enables direct work without the necessity for warming-up, while the quasi-double beam optics eliminates drifts
  • A compact and effective cooling system is included in the starter-pack
  • Cold Vapor/Hydride Generation apparatus is also available

The Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (GFAAS) offers the optimal combination of high sensitivity/selectivity with a low running cost.

High Analytical Performance

  • Eliminates the need for pre-concentration or hydride generation method when ascertaining As, Cd Se, Sb, Bi, and other elements, thanks to the EDLs
  • Allows easy direct analysis of samples with high organic and salt content — food and soil digests, blood, brines, body fluids, sea water, etc.
  • Lumex Instruments’ knowledge combined with gas-phase dynamic dilution system enables the determination of Na, K, Mg, and Ca from sub-ppb levels to hundreds of ppm

Automation and Usability

  • Electrodeless discharge lamps and hollow cathode lamps are both received by the 6-lamp turret
  • Plug and measure convenience
  • Smart autosampler with 47 positions
  • Easy-to-use software allows processing, results storage, and the setting of operating conditions
  • Safety self-control
  • Noiseless operation and compact size

Low-Cost Analysis

  • The autosampler functions with regular centrifuge-type tubes
  • 28 mm standard graphite tubes of both L’vov and Massman types are available
  • Tube lifetime is extended

Service and Support

  • Both training and seminars are provided
  • Service is available during and after the warranty period
  • Custom-made analytical procedures by request, along with validation support
  • Supply of consumables
