High sensitive measurement conducted with SEA1200VX enables significantly better "limit of detection" and superior repeatability.

Measurement of lead (Pb) in Brass

Excellent linearity of a calibration curve for brass created at optimal measurement conditions achieves a detection lower limit of Pb 16 ppm at a measuring time of 300 seconds.

Measurement of cadmium (Cd) in Brass

Excellent linearity of the calibration curve was also obtained at optimal measurement conditions resulting in an excellent detection lower limit of 5 ppm Cd at a measuring time of 300 seconds.

Measurement of chromium (Cr) in Brass

An superior detection lower limit of 18ppm at 300 seconds was achieved at optimal measurement conditions.
