High-Resolution Continuum Source (HR-CS) AAS

With the contrAA 800, lamp change in AAS is past. Only one light-intensive lamp, a xenon short arc lamp, covers the entire wavelength range of AAS. A high-resolution spectrometer with CCD detector gives a 3D spectrum and provides a maximum confidence in results and the best detection limits down to the sub ppb range. Fast sequential and multi-element measurements reduce the measurement time and maximize the sample throughput. With the spectral background correction automated by software routines (ABC and CSI-tool) even difficult samples can be analyzed easily. An elaborate design combines this unique optics with all atomization techniques, the flame, graphite furnace and hydride technique in a single platform. A wide range of intelligent accessories maximizes productivity, safety and ease of use for analytical routines. With the fully automated direct solid analysis you can skip the effort of sample digestion.

Patented Technology and Ingenious Solutions

Unparalleled flexibility – one lamp, all the elements

A xenon short arc lamp generates a continuous emission spectrum over the entire range of wavelengths of relevance for the AAS. Every element and wavelength can be analyzed at any time as selected in the software. This includes molecular absorption bands that can be used for the analysis of non-metals. Secondary wavelengths with high light intensity are also available, allowing the dynamic range to be extended to higher concentrations. The extraordinary light intensity of the xenon lamp also guarantees an excellent signal-to-noise ratio, thus significantly improving detection limits and precision.

  • Multielement analysis across the entire spectrum (185—900 nm)
  • Expanded range of application and implementation
  • Greater productivity

Unparalleled precision and accuracy – at the highest resolution, with the least interference

The combination of a high-resolution spectrometer and a CCD array detector provides for high-resolution absorption spectra with extremely detailed information. A three-dimensional representation of the spectra provides for the correct evaluation of the absorption lines and their spectral environment. It also provides information on other elements present in the sample that can be measured at the same time as well.

Modern software tools make data evaluation easier. Spectral background and lamp intensity fluctuations are automatically and directly corrected in the spectrum. Interference from other atomic and molecular absorption structures is reduced to a minimum from the outset as a result of the high level of resolution. Complex spectral interferences can be corrected using matrix correction spectra.

  • Determination and rapid sequential quantification of all of the elements contained in the sample
  • Simple method development
  • Reliable results
