novAA® 400    

novAA® 400

PC-controlled fully automated compact spectrometer for flame and graphite technique with transverse heated graphite furnace, with single and double beam mode and with automatic 6-lamp turret.

Transverse-heated graphite furnace - state-of-the-art in graphite AAS ...
... standard at novAA® 400

Precise measurement of trace elements over a wide concentration range while saving time, space and money - an assignment the novAA® 400 handles with:

  • The high precision you would expect from our highperformance optics
  • The speed required in a high-sample-throughput routine laboratory
  • The robustness needed to withstand high salt concentrations in routine work

Let the novAA® 400 do the work for you. It controls not only the temperature-time program for unknown sample matrices, but also all instrument and accessory functions via software. Combined with the graphite-tube autosampler, the instrument will measure your samples over night - and even perform dilutions, should varying element contents so require.

The core - transverse-heated graphite furnace, always a step ahead
Today, transverse-heating is the state-of-the-art in graphite AAS. This innovative concept is employed in all graphite furnace systems from Analytik Jena.

Transverse-heating contributes significantly to the high performance of the graphite furnace and thus to the analytical efficiency of the entire system. Analytik Jena has been setting the standard on the AAS market for several years.

The transverse-heated graphite tube and the furnace are designed to guarantee constant temperature distribution in the graphite tube. This considerably reduces matrix influences and makes analysis almost free of memory effects.

The analytical advantages of transverse-heated graphite tube technology are obvious:

  • Problem-free trace and ultra-pure analysis of real samples with varied matrices
  • Loss of sensitivity and contamination interference, common with conventional longitudinally heated graphite tubes, are eliminated
  • Even extremely low- volatility elements such as vanadium and molybdenum can be analyzed without difficulty

As an added economic advantage over the longitudinally heated tube, the transverse-heated tube has an atomization temperature several hundred degrees lower. This saves energy and considerably extends tube life.

Make your choice from our range of tubes:

  • The pyrolyzed standard tube for simple up to difficult tasks
  • Or the sophisticated Composite Tube-Platform system with PIN platform for complex applications

contrAA series (300/700)    

contrAA® —  Here is a new technology that expands the field of atomic spectrometry: High-Resolution Continuum Source AAS

contrAA® 300 — The  High-Resolution Continuum Source Atomic Absorption Spectrometer for Flame and Hydride Technique

contrAA® 700 — The  High-Resolution Continuum Source Atomic Absorption Spectrometer for Flame, Hydride and Graphite furnace Technique

The better way to do atomic absorption

Analytik Jena brings an innovation on the market — the contrAA® series — which exceeds the performance of conventional AA spectrometers in all parameters.
This new technology — High-Resolution Continuum Source AAS — represents previously unattained effectiveness
and quality of measurement results. Following decades of experience in the development of spectrometers and graphite furnaces and in cooperation with partners from leading research institutes, a vision becomes reality — the start of a new generation in AAS, with the contrAA® series, which finally closes the gap between ICP OES and AAS.

High-Resolution Continuum Source AAS (HR-CS AAS) covers the complete spectral range from the near vacuum-UV to the near infrared with a single continuum source, providing innovative capabilities. For the first time, genuine sequential multi-element analysis is implemented in AAS without the need for a multitude of different light sources. 

At first glance:

  • Maximum versatility and flexibility
  • Guaranteed stability
  • Improved accuracy
  • Maximum information content
  • Speed for higher efficiency
  • New level of performance
  • Fast sequential multi-element determination for flame AAS
  • Simultaneous background correction
  • Full post processing of measurement (FPP)

Unique Flexibility 
The xenon short-arc lamp as a continuum source is ideal for any element to be analyzed. No matter how frequently or seldom you have to determine an element, the HR-CS AAS instrument is immediately ready for measurement. You have every freedom for line selection, as the source covers the entire continuous wavelength range. All absorbing atom lines are immediately available, irrespective of the emission properties of the HCL (such as windows transmissive to UV or visible radiation). In addition, several new types of lines can be used for analysis.

Immediate Readiness for Measurement 
The immediate readiness for measurement provided by HR-CS AAS is due to the fact that the lamp needs no fixed warm-up time to avoid output drift. Innovative correction algorithms continuously compensate any drift or fluctuation of the spectrometer including the source.

Improved Performance
HR-CS AAS features an improved signal-to-noise ratio and markedly better detection limits. This is due to the higher radiation density of the Xe continuum source compared to HCLs, and the enormously increased quantum efficiency of a CCD semiconductor detector compared to the photomultiplier tube commonly used in line-source AAS (LS AAS). HR-CS AAS is the first technique that c an efficiently correct spectral interferences in flame AAS by structured flames or molecule structures. This provides improved simultaneous background correction, and capabilities to correct spectral interferences to increase the accuracy of analytical results.

contrAA® is closing the gap between ICP and AAS! As robust and interference-free as a traditional AAS system, yet the variety and speed of the information is comparable to that of an ICP - a combination which will satisfy all future requirements!
