Just say No to service contracts, save your money!

We get a lot of calls from frustrated big brand customers. They have essentially just paid for their instrument three times in seven years with an expensive $6K/year service contract, and now they have no instrument due to parts being unavailable. This is criminal, and we feel for you if this is why you are in the market for an AA.  If you are looking for the opposite experience, we are here to help,  Buck Atomic Absorption spectrometers are built to be simple and reliable, so you don’t need to waste money on service contracts, save that money for raises, or a new company car.  


the Buck 230ATS is the perfect unit for plating shops, mines in rugged locations, oil refineries, classrooms, and silicone chip manufacturers. Click here to see some of our customers.

    Ease of Use

    The ATS (Automated Touch Screen) line from Buck is designed to be reliable, easily serviceable, and easy to use.  The new ATS line offers conveniences like:

    • Automated wavelength setting
    • Automated Slit selection
    • Push button ignition
    • 10” color touchscreen
    • 5 screen tabbed GUI (graphic user interface)
    • 4 USB ports for
    • Manufactured and supported in the USA
    • D2 Background correction 

     Analytical Performance

    The New 230ATS continues Buck's long tradition of making dual beam Atomic absorption spectrometers with in-line Deuterium background correction. Our efficient optical design gives our systems superior energy, and better results for Arsenic and Selenium, than double beam Atomic Absorption Spectrometer systems without the need for high cost EDL lamps. Our simple design also allows our instruments to have a smaller footprint and lighter weight than our competitors.

    Atomic Absorption Spectrometer optical layout

    The Buck short-path dynamic nebulizer-burner configuration seen below is highly efficient. An inert needle, precisely positioned in a high flow venturi, delivers sample to the corrosion proof impact bead. This results in a tremendously high nebulization effect for all types of sample matrices.

    Ease of Service

    The 230ATS is hands down the easiest Atomic Absorption spectrometer to service, we have made all of the wear and tear components easily accessible, and the front panel is on tracks that allow the service engineer to slide it forward to replace components. Our founder Bob Anderson was a big brand service engineer that was tired of fixing instruments for simple design flaws, and was ignored by management when he proposed design changes. This is why you will not find a cheap component inside our Atomic absorption systems.  We would rather make less money then sell an inferior instrument.

    Caring Support

    Buck has been family owned and operated since 1970, which means we actually care about keeping you up and running. Once you buy a Buck instrument you will be treated like family, not a customer support ticket.  We answer our own phones, and respond to all emails within 24 hours or less.  

    We can help you with problems over the phone, via zoom or email.  Most domestic customers send their AA to us for service here in Norwalk, CT via FedEx ground, which saves customers thousands of dollars. We have international distributors which can assist you with after sales service as well if you are an international customer. Every instrument comes with Free In-House training for the life of your instrument, we will even buy you lunch!
