FLAME PHOTOMETER

Description

Mineral elements are essential for healthy existence of living things. In support of organic food production systems, it is necessary to determine the levels of selected elements. Flame photometer is a specialized instrument specifically designed for the analysis of sodium, potassium, lithium and calcium in biological samples. They employ interference filters to isolate the spectral region of interest. Low flame temperatures are used so that only easily excited elements like the alkali and alkali earth metals produce emissions. This results in a simpler spectrum and reduces interference from other elements that maybe present.
