AF402 Series

PG Instruments

The Atomic Fluorescence Spectroscopy technique is used to measure samples containing both hydride forming elements and mercury in a variety of analytical sectors. Due to its design and functionality, the instrument offers enhanced sensitivity, reduced interference and excellent limits of detection (ppt).

The AF402 is an ideal instrument for elemental analysis in various market and research industries including:

  • Agriculture
  • Food and Beverage
  • Public Health
  • Clinical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Geological
  • Metallurgical
  • Petrochemical

Standard features
Light Source

  • High Intensity Hollow Cathode lamps for greater intensity and stability.
  • Up to three lamps can be installed for simultaneous analysis.
  • All lamps are uniquely data coded offering important information to the PF Win operating software.

Optical system

  • Shielded optical design greatly reduces light interference.
  • Enhanced signal to noise ratio for increased analytical sensitivity.
  • Unique optical configuration for increased fluorescence intensity. Up to twice the fluorescence intensity found in traditional AFS systems.
