Shimadzu AA-6800



The demands of wide-ranging analyses now performed in various fields are pushing the envelope of instrument functionality. Instrumentation must be capable of performing many tasks, from routine analysis to Research and Development. The enhanced functions must provide benefits to the customer in a user-friendly environment. In AA analysis, Shimadzu has always been at the forefront of increasing sensitivity and precision, as well as incorporating automation and labor-saving technology. The latest embodiment of Shimadzu's original labor-saving and multi-tasking functionality is included in the AA-6800 Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. Features, such as the "AA Wizard" software, guide the user through a simplified parameter setup. The unsurpassed basic performance of the AA-6800 Series, along with the multi-tasking functionality and ease of operation provided with the AA Wizard, satisfies the wide-ranging analytical needs of demanding customers.
