Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption Spectrometer MGA-1000

Lumex Instruments’ MGA-1000 series of graphite furnace atomic absorption (GFAA) spectrometers crystallizes intuitive technology and excellent handling. GFAA spectrometry gives a perfect mix of high selectivity and sensitivity along with the low operational cost.

With High-Frequency Zeeman background correction system, MGA-1000 guarantees effective compensation of intense and swiftly varying spectral interferences and takes standard analysis of complex samples to new levels.

Key Technologies

  • Concurrent measurement of total and background absorptions with Zeeman High-Frequency Polarization Modulation (ZHFPM) background correction
  • Electrodeless Discharge Lamps (EDL) offer low detection parameters and direct As and Se determination at sub-ppb levels without hydride generation method
  • Stabilized temperature platform furnace (STPF) concept is fulfilled
  • Quasi-double beam optics remove drifts and enable direct work without any warm-up needed
  • Compact and effective cooling system in the starter-pack
  • Gas-phase dynamic dilution system expands the list of applications – determination of trace elements as well as key components is possible
  • Cold Vapor/Hydride Generation apparatus is available
