Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy Laboratory

The laboratory’s main activity is determination of elements’ concentrations at trace levels in environmental samples and different sorts of products such as: pure chemicals, food additives or pharmaceuticals. Methods that are used in laboratory are normalised, accreditated or customer deddicated.
Specialist services offered by the laboratory also include developing new measurement procedures with the use of the AAS or ICP-OES technique.
The world-class research equipment at the laboratory’s disposal and our experienced specialists ensure high quality of services.


  • AAS (FAAS and GF-AAS) determination of elements (As, Ag, Ca, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, K, Mg, Mn, Na, Pb, Si, Se, Sn, Ti, Zn)
  • ICP-OES determination of elements (list of elements on demand)
  • Food and food additives testing
  • Quantitative analysis of elements in products for pharmacy and veterinary medicine
  • Optimization and research on new measurement and preparation procedures
  • Thermo Scientific iCE3500 AAS spectrometer with VP100 Continuous Flow Vapour Generator and EC100 Electric Furnace for atomization of hydrides:
    – 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 Zeeman effect (increased sensitivity of the assays of some elements)
    – spectral range: 190 – 900 nm
  • GBC SavantAA∑ AAS Spectrometer
    – double-beam atomic absorption spectrometer with one measuring chamber
    – Flame atomisation system for measurements of Cd, Co, Ni, Zn, Cu, Mn, Pb, Cr
  • Thermo Scientific iCAP 7400 Duo ICP-OES spectrometer:
    – spectral range: 190 – 900 nm
  • ETHOS One and Ethos UP microwave digestion systems (Milestone)
    – versatility in the preparation of samples
  • Muffle furnace, ball mill, homogenizers
    – versatility in the preparation of samples
