contrAA 800. Atomic Absorption. Redefined.

Like all graphite furnace systems by Analytik Jena contrAA 800 can be upgraded with the solid AA technology for direct solids analysis

With a Xenon lamp emitting a continuous spectrum at high intensity, any element and wavelength can readily be analyzed – the contrAA turned AAS into a true multi-element technique with unmatched flexibility

The atomic absorption spectrometers of the contrAA® series are the only commercially available instruments for High-Resolution Continuum Source AAS (HR-CS AAS). As a link between standard AAS instruments and ICP-OES spectrometers contrAA combines the best of two worlds: rapid sequential and simultaneous multi-element analysis, ease of handling and manageable costs.

With a Xenon lamp emitting a continuous spectrum at high intensity, any element and wavelength can readily be analyzed whenever the requirement occurs – the contrAA turned AAS into a true multi-element technique with unmatched flexibility. A high-resolution spectrometer with CCD detector produces a highly resolved absorption spectrum for each sample, providing deeper insight about the sample as well as visual proof of correct signal evaluation.

contrAA 800 Series – Superior Technologies Guarantee for Excellent Results

  • Multi Element
    One light source for fast sequential and simultaneous multi-element analysis
  • High-Resolution Optics
    Low noise – better accuracy – lowest detection limits
  • HD Spectrum
    High-resolution 3D spectra display for detailed spectral information
  • Dynamic Mode
    Extended measurement range of up to 5 orders of magnitude

With features like fast sequential and simultaneous multi-element analysis, including semi-quantitative overview screening of unknown samples, and analysis of non-metals contrAA 800 opens up new application fields previously reserved to other, much more expensive technologies. Superior correction algorithms for background and spectral interferences take productivity and accuracy of AAS to a new level – all while preserving its simple, robust and low-cost operation.

With its automatic atomizer switching and two-dimensional atomizer alignment, the contrAA 800 is a versatile all-rounder that comes in a modern, space-saving design. Complemented by a wide range of accessories including autosamplers and online-dilutors, flow-injection and hydride generation systems the contrAA 800 is the most versatile AAS available today.

Available Configurations:

  • contrAA 800 F for flame and hydride technology
  • contrAA 800 G – for graphite furnace technique, solid AA and HydrEA
  • contrAA 800 D – for flame and graphite furnace technique, solid AA, hydride and HydrEA

Seven Reasons Why contrAA 800 Should Be Part of Every Lab:

1. Comfortable handling
2. Maximum flexibility
3. Accelerated processes
4. Best Precision
5. Low space requirements
6. Long service life
7. Decades of experience
