Atomic Absorption Spectrometer (AAS)

Atomic absorption spectroscopy is a widely used technique for trace analysis of elements in matrices ranging from foods, waste waters, geological, pharmaceutical and biological.

The absorption occurs when a ground state atom absorbs energy in the form of light of a  specific wavelength and is elevated  to an excited state. The amount of light energy absorbed will increase as the atom population of the selected dement increases in the light path.

We are equipped with the state of art Perkin Elmer 400 atomic absorption spectrometer which provides convinent analysis in the ppm level for major constituents .The typical samples analysed are feed, food, water, metals, drugs and salts.

  1. Hi,

    I work for a Finnish company that arranges analytical services for its customers. At the moment I have a possible customer project where we might want to analyze silver content via AAS.

    The matrix of the samples could be powders or pellets, usually within 10,000-20,000 ppm for powders and 1000-50000 ppm for the pellets or materials treated with additives like a variety of polymers/silicones, usually have a range of 1-100 ppm.

    Are you able to perform AAS measurement for these kinds of matrixes?

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you in advance!

    Kind regards,
