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
