Tips for buying Atomic Absorption

  1. In order to minimize background noise, atomic absorption equipment should be dual channel. They should have at least two lamps: one for use and the other on the warm-up setting, to minimize down time for lamp replacement.
  2. These atomic absorption analyzers should have at least a flame photometer device for sample ionization. A graphite furnace is generally more sensitive and eliminates the need for a flame.
  3. Purchasing atomic absorption equipment with both capabilities is recommended for facilities needing extra flexibility.
  4. Atomic absorption equipment using a flame photometer should have gas controls and at least a flashback arrestor onboard to protect against explosion. Automatic ignition is recommended over manual ignition because it is more user friendly and also adds safety by starting the flame automatically when necessary.
  5. A background correct feature is needed to reduce the occurrence of erroneous results due to interference from contaminants in the sample, variations in the flame, or other sources of background noise.
  6. All atomic absorption equipment should store results in memory and have a computer interface to transmit results to the laboratory information system.
  7. Atomic absorption equipment should produce hard copies of results using a printer. Readout with graphic capabilities can display results in tables and graphs. It is recommended for some advanced atomic absorption analyzer applications.
  8. Auto sampling and auto dilution functions are also desirable because they free up technician time and ensure consistent sampling techniques.
  9. When facilities are considering whether to use this technology and which atomic absorption analyzer system to buy, they should look into the relative accuracy of different AAS methodologies, the demand for a particular test, the number of tests ordered, and the cost of the atomic absorption equipment system.
  10. Facilities should determine the complexity of the atomic absorption equipment system and the accessories needed based on the number and types of elements to be determined, the number of samples to be tested, the experience of the operators, and the estimated amount of equipment use.
  11. Before purchasing the atomic absorption analyzer, facilities should evaluate physical requirements, such as the size of the working area and the types and number of exhaust vents, gas tanks, and connections offered by the manufacturer.
  12. Tests needing little or no training do not require elaborate QC, and are less likely to produce inaccurate results - for example: the non-automated dipstick urinalysis.
  13. Most clinical laboratory tests, including automated urine, blood, and chemistry analyses, belong to the moderate complexity category. In this group the tests and atomic absorption analyzers require a limited amount of sample and reagent preparation, as well as limited operator intervention during the analytical process.
  14. The highly complex category encompasses procedures requiring a high degree of operator preparation, calibration, intervention, and analysis, such as clinical cytogenics and histopathology applications.
  15. Computer interface capabilities in an atomic absorption analyzer are very important. An effective interface with the existing LIS or the central computing system can be useful for inputting test data, verifying testing accuracy, and maintaining QC, calibration, proficiency testing, and patient files.
  16. The suppliers offer facilities service contracts or service on a time-and-materials basis. A third-party organization may also offer such services. Facilities should carefully consider the decision to purchase an atomic absorption analyzer service contract, which can be justified for several reasons.
  17. Usually, service contract customers get routine software updates, which enhance the atomic absorption equipment system's performance, at no charge. Software updates are often cumulative, so previous software revisions may be required in order to install and operate a new performance feature.
  18. Facilities buying a service contract also ensure that preventive maintenance is performed at regular intervals to eliminate the possibility of unexpected maintenance costs. Many suppliers do not extend system performance and uptime guarantees beyond the length of the warranty, unless the atomic absorption analyzer system is covered by a service contract.
  19. Before deciding on a specific configuration, facilities should consider the number and types of tests performed to avoid paying for unnecessary analysis packages and assaying features.
  20. Facilities are strongly encouraged to standardize their atomic absorption equipment; there are numerous benefits to doing so: it simplifies staff training and servicing and parts acquisition, and provides greater bargaining leverage when negotiating new atomic absorption analyzer equipment purchases and service contract costs.
