Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (ASA) Laboratory

The main area of ​​activity of the laboratory is elemental analysis of the following samples: soil, plants, food, industrial materials.

Specialist services offered by the laboratory also include developing new measurement procedures with a the use of the AAS technique and training. Unique class research equipment, which has a laboratory and experience team provide high quality services.

The lab implemented quality policy in accordance with PN-EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018-02 standards.


  • AAS determination of elements: As, Ag, Ca, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Hg, K, Mg, Mn, Na, Pb, Si, Se, Sn, Ti, Zn
  • Soil, plants, food and industrial materials
  • Optimization and research on new measurement procedures
  • iCE3500 AAS Spectrometer (Thermo Scientific)
    – double-beam atomic absorption spectrometer with two measuring chamber
    – 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 based on the Zeeman effect (increased sensitivity of the assays of some elements)
    – spectral range: 190 – 900 nm
  • VP100 Continuous Flow Vapour Generator producing hydride and mercury cold vapours (Thermo Scientific)
  • EC100 electric furnace for atomization of samples processed by a hydride generation device (Thermo Scientific)
    – greater precision and sensitivity of metal content measurements,
  • ETHOS One microwave digestion labstation with HPR-1000/10S high-pressure segmented rotor (Milestone)
    – versatility in the preparation of samples
  • Muffle furnace, ball mill, homogenizers
    – versatility in the preparation of sample
