Buck Atomic Absorption Spectrometer with Furnace

In this system, a solution of the sample is nebulized by a flow of gaseous oxidant, mixed with a gaseous fuel, and carried into a flame where atomization occurs. These atoms absorb light from a specialized lamp, and the loss of intensity, or absorbance, is measured as a direct relation to the concentration of the analyte, which can be detected at levels in the parts per thousand and million (ppm) ranges. The graphite furnace accessory can be used to analyze solid samples.
