Atomic Absorption Spectrometer (AAS) Laboratory
Atomic absorption spectroscopy is a widely used technique for detecting trace and heavy elements in a wide range of matrices, such as foods, waste streams, geological, pharmaceutical, and biological samples.
We have a state-of-the-art Varian SpectraA200 atomic absorption spectrometer that allows us to analyze major constituents down to the ppm level. It's utilized in environmental testing, metal analysis, semiconductor manufacturing, petroleum and chemical manufacture, and pharmaceuticals, among other things.
The equipment can detect the following elements: sodium (Na), potassium(K), aluminium (Al), titanium (Ti), Beryllium (Be), strontium (Sr), silver (Ag), lead (Pb), Arsenic (As), manganese (Mn), magnesium (Mg), copper (Cu), cadmium (Cd), chromium (Cr), iron (Fe), nickel (Ni), and zinc (Zn).
