Powerful High-End AAS Device: contrAA 800

The contrAA 800 is a powerful high-end AAS instrument available from Analytik Jena US. It links the best of two worlds, featuring the robustness and high cost-effectiveness of traditional atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) along with the sample throughput and flexibility of ICP methods.

Rapid processes, excellent accuracy, and excellent ease of use combine together to offer a new level of AAS efficiency.

  • Powerful yet simple routine analysis is achieved by fast-sequential multi-element analysis utilizing flame methods
  • Low-cost trace analysis using graphite furnace AAS for recurring measurement tasks
  • Helps visualize high-definition absorption spectra in both 2D and 3D for interference-free analysis
  • Direct solids analysis can be made using graphite furnace technology
  • Sulfur, phosphorus, halogens, and other molecular absorptions are exclusively determined
  • Enhanced detection of selenium, mercury, and arsenic using hydride technology in flame and graphite furnace modes
