Entry-level atomic absorption system with advanced capabilities

    The Agilent 55B AA is ideal for any laboratory requiring an entry level AA system with advanced capabilities. The double-beam 55B AA features an LCD screen and dedicated keyboard for simple, stand-alone operation. The 55B AA combines rugged, reliable hardware with an integrated software interface for fast, easy operation


  • Designed for corrosive environments—Sealed optics with quartz overcoated mirrors protect unit from dust or vapors. Optional air purge maintains continuous flow of clean air inside the instrument.
  • Rugged, industrial LCD screen and dedicated keypad suit rigorous laboratory conditions—unlike touch panel screens susceptible to premature failure.
  • Fast deuterium correction—High-intensity deuterium background corrector provides a fast 2 ms response time for accurate correction of transient background signal.
  • Fast, simple operation—Fully automated wavelength and slit selection eliminate complex alignment procedures. Two lamp positions mean you can measure and pre-warm the lamp for the next element, saving set-up time.
  • Easy lamp set-up—Adjust or replace the background correction lamp without removing the instrument covers.
  • Expandable—Combine with the SIPS—Sample Introduction Pump System—to reduce standard and sample prep time, complete multi-point calibrations online, and quickly dilute over range samples.
  • Upgradable—Add an external PC and SpectrAA Worksheet software to upgrade the 55B AA to a PC-controlled flame or furnace system for automated multi-element analyses.
  • Compatible with the complete range of AA accessories, including the GTA 110 graphite furnace and the SPS 3 flame autosampler.
