Atomic Absorption Spectrometer Operating Procedure
1. Turn on the atomic absorption spectrometer (AA) using the main power switch located on the front right-hand side of the instrument. Allow the AA to warm up until the front screen reads, “Recall method y/n?” Sign in your name, time, and the element being analyzed in the AA user’s logbook.
2. Turn on the computer next to the AA, if it is not already on.
