contrAA® 800 D is the incredibly flexible all-round talent with an application range unrivaled in AAS.
Thanks to its automatic atomizer change contrAA® 800 D combines flame-, hydride-/HydrEA- and graphite furnace technique, including solid AA®, with all technological advantages of the High-Resolution Continuum Source atomic absorption spectrometry in a compact design.

For more information about the High-Resolution Continuum Source AAS technique please visit the contrAA® series page.

contrAA® 800 D – Your Benefits:

  • Just one light source for all elements – each element and each line can be measured at any time
  • Unique simultaneous background correction
  • Fast-sequential and simultaneous multi-element analysis
  • Rapid readiness for measurement
  • Automatic atomizer change and two-dimensional atomizer alignment
  • Automatically optimized drying process for highly efficient analysis
  • Easy to operate and robust


The contrAA® 800 D combines all atomizing techniques in a compact device, making it universally and flexibly applicable. Thanks to the numerous analytical advantages of HR-CS AAS it provides the appropriate solution for almost every field of instrumental analysis, in routine application as well as in research.

contrAA® 800 D is suited for fast-sequential and simultaneous multi-element analysis. The sample throughput for multi-element analysis using flame technique of the new generation of contrAA® meets the level of simultaneous ICP-OES instruments. In graphite furnace technique which offers very low detection limits for many elements the simultaneous multi-element analysis allows a higher throughput than conventional line source AAS.

In addition to the traditional use for the determination of various metals, the HR-CS AAS can also be applied for the analysis of non-metals, such as phosphorus, sulfur or halogens. In connection with the hydride or HydrEA technique contrAA® 800 D can be used for the determination of hydride forming elements, e.g. antimony, arsenic, bismuth, selenium, or tin.
