Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy Laboratory

The laboratory’s main activity is determining concentrations of metals on at trace levels in environmental samples and in such products as pure chemicals, food additives and pharmaceuticals.
Specialist services offered by the laboratory also include developing new measurement procedures with the use of the AAS technique.
The world-class research equipment at the laboratory’s disposal and our experienced specialists ensure high quality services.


  • AAS determination of elements: As, Ag, Ca, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, K, Mg, Mn, Na, Pb, Si, Se, Sn, Ti, Zn
  • Food and food additives testing
  • Quantitative analysis of products for pharmacy and veterinary medicine
  • Optimization and research on new measurement procedures
  • Spectrometer ASA — iCE3500 (Thermo Scientific)
    – double-beam atomic absorption spectrometer with two measuring chambers
    – possibility to measure using several AAS techniques: Graphite Furnace AAS, Flame AAS, Hydride Generation
    AAS and Cold Vapour AAS
    – possibility of simultaneous correction for background in a graphite furnace using a deuterium lamp and based
    on the Zeeman effect (increased sensitivity of the assays of some elements)
    – spectral range: 190 – 900 nm
  • VP100 Continuous Flow Vapour Generator producing hydride and mercury cold vapours (Thermo Scientific)
  • EC100 electric furnace for atomization of samples processed by a hydride generation device (Thermo Scientific)
    – greater precision and sensitivity of metal content measurements
  • ETHOS One microwave digestion labstation with HPR —1000/10S high – pressure segmented rotor (Milestone)
    – versatility in the preparation of samples
  • Muffle furnace, ball mill, homogenizers
    – versatility in the preparation of samples
