contrAA® Series — Atomic Absorption. Redefined.

The atomic absorption spectrometers of the contrAA® series are the only commercially available instruments for High-Resolution Continuum Source AAS (HR-CS AAS). As a link between standard AAS instruments and ICP-OES spectrometers contrAA® combines the best of two worlds: rapid sequential and simultaneous multi-element analysis, ease of handling and manageable costs.

With a Xenon lamp emitting a continuous spectrum at high intensity, any element and wavelength can readily be analyzed whenever the requirement occurs – the contrAA® turned AAS into a true multi-element technique with unmatched flexibility. A high-resolution spectrometer with CCD detector produces a highly resolved absorption spectrum for each sample, providing deeper insight about the sample as well as visual proof of correct signal evaluation.

With features like fast sequential and simultaneous multi-element analysis, including semi-quantitative overview screening of unknown samples, and analysis of non-metals contrAA® 800 opens up new application fields previously reserved to other, much more expensive technologies. Superior correction algorithms for background and spectral interferences take productivity and accuracy of AAS to a new level – all while preserving its simple, robust and low-cost operation.

With its automatic atomizer switching and two-dimensional atomizer alignment, the contrAA® 800 is a versatile all-rounder that comes in a modern, space-saving design.


contrAA® 800 series — superior technologies guarantee for excellent results:

  • Multi Element
    One light source for fast sequential and simultaneous multi-element analysis
  • High-Resolution Optics
    Interference-free analysis and highest precision
  • HD Spectrum
    High-resolution 3D spectra display for detailed spectral information
  • Dynamic Mode
    Extended measurement range of up to 5 orders of magnitude


Complemented by a wide range of accessories including autosamplers and online-dilutors, flow-injection and hydride generation systems the contrAA® 800 is the most versatile AAS available today.


Available configurations:

  • contrAA® 800 F
    For flame and hydride technology
  • contrAA® 800 G
    For graphite furnace technique, solid AA®, and HydrEA
  • contrAA® 800 D
    For flame and graphite furnace technique, solid AA®, hydride, and HydrEA


Seven reasons why contrAA® 800 should be part of every lab:

  1. Comfortable handling
  2. Maximum flexibility
  3. Accelerated processes
  4. Best Precision
  5. Low space requirements
  6. Long service life
  7. Decades of experience
