Flame AA spectrometer comes with injection module

Article Type: New materials and equipment From: Anti-Corrosion Methods and Materials, Volume 55, Issue 2.

Analytik Jena UK is offering the Novaa 300 fully automated flame atomic absorption spectrophotometer complete with an SFS6 injection module at a special package price. The software controlled SFS6 injection system reduces analysis times, improves the baseline stability of the spectrometer and minimises memory effects through continuous cleaning and flushing of the burner heads.

The Novaa 300 flame atomic absorption spectrophotometers offer features and performance normally found only on much more expensive systems. High-quality optics from Carl Zeiss, and fully automatic set up and running with computer controlled gas box, lamp turret and burner head ensure high-quality results are obtained quickly and easily. The Novaa 300 spectrophotometers are available as stand-alone units or with external PC control. The stand-alone unit features an integrated PC with touch-screen control to save space.

With historic links to the Carl Zeiss optical company, Analytik Jena offers superb quality optical components with a ten year guarantee. Sealed optical units are protected from aggressive laboratory atmospheres, while the use of aspheric optical components optimises imaging conditions with minimal aberrations. With an automatic six-lamp hollow cathode lamp turret and D2 HCL background correction, accurate analyses can be carried out even on samples with a high background content. The addition of the SFS6 injection unit enhances the analysis of samples with high salt, sugar or acid content, organic samples or small sample volumes. Optimised flame conditions are guaranteed for each element in the analysis with fully automatic control of gas flow and burner height.

With a choice of fuel and oxidant gases, the gas box ensures there are no gas pressure fluctuations in the flame and a constant fuel/oxidant gas ratio as well as safe ignition and quenching of the flame. Monitoring the flame conditions allows rapid adaptation to unknown samples to give the best sensitivity. The Windows- based control and analysis software offers the same excellent features as Analytik Jena's well-known WinAAS software. By simply touching the built- in screen the user is guided through the analysis to make sample running easier than ever before. The Quick Start routine makes method development possible in less than six steps for fast analysis and fast results.
