Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy, or AAS, is an analytical technique used to detect specific elements and their levels of concentration in a sample.
AAS is a type of atomic spectroscopy, which includes two other analytical methods: atomic emission and atomic fluorescence. The process of excitation and decay to the ground state is involved in all three methods. However, the difference between each technique is when the energy is measured. In atomic emission spectroscopy (AES), the energy emitted in the decay process is measured, while in AAS the energy absorbed during the excitation process is measured.
Atomic spectroscopy, and atomic absorption spectroscopy specifically, is commonly used in analytical chemistry, drug development, and industrial settings, and can perform both qualitative and quantitative analyses.
To obtain results, AAS uses the unique wavelengths that different atoms absorb to determine an element’s concentration in a liquid or solid sample, which is then compared to a standard, a previously recorded result of the same compound. It is a highly sensitive technique, and can measure concentration in parts per million (ppm) or parts per billion (ppb), enabling the detection of even trace elements in a sample.
AAS produces an absorption spectrum, which is recorded using an atomic absorption spectrometer. AA spectrometers typically include a flame burner—usually a hollow cathode lamp (HCL)—to atomize the sample, a monochromator, and a photon detector. AA Spectrometers that employ a flame burner are also referred to as flame atomic absorption spectrometers, employing flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS or flame AAS) to obtain results. The detection limits of FAAS are of the order of 1–100 µg L−1, making it an excellent method of choice for determining minor and trace elements in liquid samples, or solid samples that have been converted to a liquid.
Depending on the model you’re interested in, some atomic absorption spectrometers come equipped with a turret or fixed lamp socket that holds multiple lamps to reduce downtime between samples or allow for sequential elemental analysis.
AAS can also be referred to as atomic absorption spectrometry, with the difference between the two being that spectroscopy is the study of how energy and materials interact, while spectrometry refers to how you apply spectroscopy as a measuring technique.
AA Spectrometer Components, Types, & Price
This device uses several components, but the three main pieces include: a light source, an atomizer, and a detection source. The main difference in AA spectrometer models is the atomizer used.
Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy Equipment Leases to Fit Every Need
Purchasing isn’t always the most feasible way to procure an AAS spectrometer. And, buying used equipment can end up giving you a headache rather than provide a solution. Rather than tie up much needed capital in an expensive, but necessary, analytical device. lease your next atomic absorption spectrometer with Excedr.
Our leasing program’s flexible payment options makes taking on equipment expenditures possible when you’re working with a smaller budget or trying to use your cash more effectively.
Furthermore, if you’re measuring different elements, you may be interested in other methods of elemental analysis. If this includes mass spectrometry (MS) or inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), we cam help with procuring those instruments as well. Our selection of equipment leases is not limited to an inventory, as we are able to source equipment for clients on an ad hoc basis.
Get in touch with us to learn more about our program’s benefits, or simply request a lease estimate for an instrument of your choice, and we can begin the approval process as soon as possible.
This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.
If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
