Increase productivity on PerkinElmer AA, ICP-OES or ICP-MS systems

Sample handling is an important aspect of any successful trace elemental analysis. On-line procedures for sample preparation and delivery are increasingly becoming methods of choice as the demands for productivity increase. Flow injection atomic spectroscopy (FIAS) is a superb complement to PerkinElmer® atomic absorption (AA), inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES) or inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) systems as a means of sample preparation and delivery. A fully integrated and automated system, the FIAS can dramatically increase laboratory productivity and capability.

System description

Automated flow injection system for use with Flame AA, cold-vapor and hydride-generation AA, graphite furnace AA, ICP-OES and ICP-MS systems. The FIAS 100 system is provided with 1 pump and the FIAS 400 systems are provided with 2 pumps.

System control

Fully automated operation with computer-controlled spectrometer systems through control and samples windows integrated into PerkinElmer instrument-control software.

Transport of reagents

Stepper-motor driven peristaltic pump(s) with a maximum of 8 channels each for tubing with 0.13 to 3.18 mm inner diameter. Pump speed is selectable from 20 to 120 rpm.

Sampling and FI switching

Valve with 5 ports and exchangeable sample loops. An optional 8-port valve is flow switching available for the FIAS 400MS system. All systems have exchangeable sample loops of various volumes.

Gas supply

Carrier gas stream (argon) flow controlled from 40 to 250 mL/min by flow meter. Required inlet pressure: 320-400 kPa. Automatic switch-off after operating pauses of more than 10 min.

Absorption cell

Quartz cell is required for mercury/hydride AA analysis.

Cell heating

The cell can be heated using the air/acetylene flame or an optional electrically heated mantle(100 to 1000 °C).

Data connection

Built-in IEEE-488 and RS-232C interfaces. Addressing and switchover between IEEE and RS-232C by DIP switches.

Regulatory compliance

Classified as a laboratory instrument. Complies with the applicable European Union directives and standards for safety and electromagnetic compatibility for CE marking. The instrument has been developed and is produced in compliance with ISO 9001.
