System 2 Electrodeless Discharge Lamp for the detection of elemental Cadmium (Cd). Note: PinAAcle instruments require the purchase of an EDL driver assembly, part number 03030997, for each of the lamp positions to be used.

Electrodeless Discharge Lamps for greater brightness (EDLs) are typically much brighter and, in some cases, provide better sensitivity than comparable HCLs. EDLs are preferred for certain volatile elements. They offer better precision and lower detection limits for analyses that are “noisy” due to weak hollow cathode emission.

Electrodeless Discharge Lamps (EDLs) are designed to be physically interchangeable with Intensitron Hollow Cathode Lamps. Their power supplies are built into all the PinAAcle series of atomic absorption spectrometers. Use of EDLs with those instruments requires only the purchase of an EDL driver assembly for each of the lamp positions to be used.

Fast Digestion Analysis of Lead and Cadmium in Rice Using GFAAS with Deuterium Background Correction

Toxic elements, such as lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd), are entering the food chain through environmental contamination. Rice, as the most widely consumed cereal grain in Asia, can quickly pick up Pb and Cd from soil, thereby seriously endangering human health through diet. These toxic element levels ne ...

Fast Digestion Analysis of Lead and Cadmium in Rice Using Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption

Lead (Pb) and cadmium (Cd) are common pollutants in grains and are extremely toxic. Pb is harmful to human organs even at trace levels, and once it accumulates in the body, it causes inhibition of hemoglobin formation and neurological disorders. Cd is even classified as human carcinogen [Group 1 ...
