contrAA 800 AAS devices for efficient and sensitive multielement analysis for research and everyday lab use

  • Easy to use – simple multielement analysis with no need for lamp changes
  • Powerful – wide dynamic range and continuous calibration
  • Cost-efficient – high productivity and operating costs that remain constant

Product Details

High Resolution Continuum Source AAS Systems

The contrAA 800 series of multielement analyzers connects the best of two worlds, featuring the high cost-effectiveness and robustness of classical atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) alongside the flexibility and sample throughput of ICP techniques.

High precision, rapid processes, and excellent ease of use all combine for a new level of AAS efficiency.

  • Simple and robust routine analysis made possible by fast-sequential multielement analysis using flame techniques
  • Visualization of high-definition absorption spectra in both 2D and 3D for interference-free analysis
  • Cost-efficient trace analysis using graphite furnace AAS for recurring measurement tasks
  • Unique determination of phosphorus, sulfur, halogens as well as other molecular absorptions
  • Direct solids analysis using graphite furnace technology
  • Improved detection of arsenic, selenium, and mercury using hydride technology in flame and graphite furnace modes

Complete flexibility to meet your multielement analysis needs

Expand your analytical application range, improve precision, and achieve higher sample throughput at a lower cost per sample.

  • Fast multielement analysis - use of a xenon lamp as a continuous source for all elements
  • Interference-free analysis - clear separation of analysis lines thanks to high-resolution optics and advanced correction algorithms for complex spectral interferences
  • Flexible method development - 3D visualization of absorption spectra
  • High detection strength - unique light intensity and sensitivity for the detection of metals, non-metals and molecules
  • Extended working range - powerful analysis methods allow you to adapt the dynamic range to the concentrations expected in the sample, to measure ultratrace elements, and other features in the same sample - using one methodology
  • High matrix tolerance - robust sample feeding and spectrometer design that’s upgradeable for fully automatic direct solid analysis

contrAA 800 – Product Animation

The unique technology of contrAA offers significant analytical advantages over traditional line source AAS. Thanks to the xenon short arc lamp, which emits a continuous high intensity spectrum, every element and wavelength can be analyzed without issue.

AAS Software: ASpect CS Optimized for multi-element analysis with HR-CS AAS

ASpect CS is optimized for multielement analysis with high resolution continuum source (HR-CS) AAS and provides straightforward, routine handling of data on a user interface with maximum flexibility – even for challenging analyses beyond daily routines. It allows for the simultaneous evaluation of multiple element lines in one spectrum and free definition of the integration ranges of individual lines.

Advanced correction algorithms automate the process of correcting both complex structured backgrounds and spectral interferences (CSI tool), providing more reliable figures than ever before. You can visualize your measurements and optimize your methods thanks to the three-dimensional, high-definition display of the spectra (HD Spectrum).

  • SOPs for easy method development
  • A large range of innovative evaluation methods such as the CSI tool
  • High safety measures and Good Laboratory Practice (GLP)
  • FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance

AAS Accessories

Performance-enhancing accessories improve precision and sample throughput. They help you meet the challenges of complex matrices in flame, graphite furnace, and hydride modes as well as direct solids sampling.
