What is an AAS?

Atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) is a spectroscopic analysis technique for determining the concentration of a single element in a sample by atomizing the sample’s contents and measuring the absorbance at a wavelength specific to that element in the gaseous state. AAS is also referred to as Atomic Absorption Spectrometry.

It is widely used in the analysis of trace metals in soils, lakes, rivers, oceans, and drinking water, as well as in pharmaceuticals, foods and beverages, geological and mineralogical samples, petroleum products, biological fluids and specimens.
