I need help with investigating and writing a proposal for Heavy metal testing using Graphite Furnace. This will include capabilities, limitations and costs (possibly cost comparison with ICP).© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 20, 2018, 2:54 am ad1c9bdddf
Advantages of GFAAS (Graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry)
- Two orders of magnitude higher in terms of detection limit compared to ICP
- Very small sample sizes can be used
- Slurries and more crude samples can be analyzed by GFAAS - theses eliminates sample preparation time compared to ICP
Limitations of GFAAS
- GFAAS usually ...
THe abover techniques are considered and compared based on capabilities and costs. Limitations are also discussed.
