A new 16 page brochure highlighting the benefits of direct solid atomic absorption spectrophotometry (AAS) is now available from Analytik Jena UK.
The new brochure is available for download from www.analytikjenauk.co.uk. The brochure highlights both the principles behind direct solid AAS and the solid sampling accessories available for the Analytik Jena range of AA instruments. The brochure also features practical applications from a diverse range of industries, including metallurgy, materials, electronics, petrochemicals, environmental, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, medicine and food.
Analytik Jena’s direct solid AAS is suitable for powders, granules, fibres and even paste-like materials such as creams, sludges or viscous oils. It provides a powerful alternative to traditional methods of analysis of solid samples which require time-consuming conversion into liquid samples, typically by acid digestion. The decomposition of the sample matrix is achieved using an appropriate temperature program. This, combined with a powerful background correction, allows interference-free and precise determination of most elements in a wide range of materials.
All graphite furnace systems from Analytik Jena can be upgraded with the solid AA® technology. Three different sample supply systems are available. These are the SSA 6 manual solid sampler, designed for occasional solid analysis; the SSA 600 fully automated solid sampler for fully automated analysis of up to 84 samples and the SSA 600L, which features an additional liquid dosing unit for the highest possible level of automation for research and routine analysis.
