"This is a new approach to atomic spectroscopy for non-metal analysis, extending the analytical possibilities for this unique instrument."
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:
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.
Seven reasons why contrAA® 800 should be part of every lab:
