Consumers are exposed to low levels of heavy metals on a daily basis and long term exposure can have negative health impacts. Since the elements themselves are distributed unevenly throughout, for example, cereal grain, with the germ and the outer layers having the highest concentrations, analyzing these grains to detect low analyte levels with accuracy and controlled reproducibility is a challenge.
The atomic absorption analysis technique provides a high performance option with features like a closed-furnace design that is sealed at both ends with easily removable bayonet-mount windows. In addition, independently controlled external and internal gas streams provide maximum flexibility, tube life, and sensitivity.
Systems like the PinAAcle™ 900 AA spectrometer make it faster and easier to get from sample to results by reducing your grain method development time, while PerkinElmer consumables and superior services will keep your lab at peak performance.
