TRACE Atomic Absorption Spectrometers

Dependable, Durable, and Complete Solutions for Atomic Absorption Spectrometry

Aurora’s TRACE series of Atomic Absorption Spectrometers are the cornerstone of elemental analysis.

The TRACE AI1200 and AI1200P provide complete solutions to accurately determine the peaks of 70+ elements, the widest analysis range on the market.

The TRACE AI 1800 with dual flame (F) and graphite furnace (GF) atomizer, autosampler, and micro-volume flame analysis technology provides unparalleled throughput and sub ppb detection.

With the previously mentioned features and the ability to include vapor-hydride generation (VG) capabilities to enable near-sub-ppb detection of certain elements, Aurora’s TRACE series of Atomic Absorbance Spectrometers can be configured to meet all of your elemental analysis requirements.

Features and Benefits

Unrivaled elemental analysis potential: Each instrument can be equipped with flame ionization, graphite furnace ionization, and vapor-hydride generation capabilities; coupled with 70+ different lamp options, our AAS instruments provide unparalleled elemental analysis options.

Automatic switching between atomizer layouts: Software-controlled atomizer configurations removes the need for manual intervention, giving you complete ease of use.

Unparalleled background correction: Utilizing both deuterium and Smith-Hieftje background correction provides increased analytical efficiency and appreciable time-reductions in your analysis procedures. The 1000 Hz modulation frequency further enables accurate corrections.

Quick and easy lamp upkeep: The lamps are easily accessible for simple adjustments and replacements, removing the need to completely disassemble the instrument.

Unrestricted throughput: The optional (AI1200P) or included (AI1200 and 1800) autosampler is compatible with all types of labware on the market, giving you the confidence to stick with your tried and tested analysis procedures.


Atomic Absorption Spectrometer

Background interferences: The TRACE Series comes complete with the following background correction techniques:

  • Deuterium
  • Smith-Hieftje
Calibration Curve - Online Dilution - Atomic Absorption Spectrometer spectrometry aas

Online Dilution: Generating a working calibration curve from a single standard sample. Reduce waste and error, no need to make a standard dilution series by hand.

Atomic Absorption Spectrometer Autosampler

Autosampler: As one of most versatile autosamplers on the market, compatible with all types of third-party labware, you benefit from the complete comfort of  being able to use nearly any size of vial or sample holder. Save staff time, reduce human error, and increase sample reproducibility.

Fast Dry Technology: Coupled with the auto-sampler, this allows for a single-sample processing time of under 30 seconds. With further adjustments of preheating and cooling temperatures, as well as injection speeds, drying times are further decreased.

Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (AAS), also called Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (AES), is a tried-and-tested elemental analysis technique. The instruments themselves are called atomic absorption spectrophotometers. By using a combination of an atomizing unit (to generate gaseous-phase atoms that emit light) and a spectrophotometer (to measure the intensity of light emitted from the aforementioned atoms), certain elements can be detected and quantified down to parts-per-billion and parts-per-trillion concentrations.
