Training in Basics of Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy
Khartoum 29 - 31 Oct 2019
Prime Scientific, in collaboration with Shepherd Scientific Solutions (SATS) has conducted a course on the basics and practice of atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS). The training course was conducted along a series of three days; facilitated by Mr. Kamal Ismail LRIC, MRIC, FIST (Atomic Spectroscopy and Analytical Chemistry, SATS) , Mr. Abdalfatah Nogod, Msc. (Molecular Spectroscopy and Analytical Chemistry, SATS), and co-facilitated by Dr. Mohamed Adam PhD (Chromatography and Analytical Chemistry, SATS), and Eng. Muzafar Imad (Technical Manager and Certified AAS Service, Prime Scientific).
The training program covered the basic theoretical concepts of atomic spectroscopy as well as practical training on the instrument and its operation. The participants learned how to calibrate, operate, and maintain an AAS instrument.
The training also touched on the do's and don'ts of operation, with focus on safety and proper use by the laboratory chemist.
The participants were from different fields of industries such as mining and agriculture; and the discussion proved to be fruitful in the knowledge sharing and understanding of the fundamental principles of AAS.
