Every genuine PerkinElmer lamp is designed for use with and tested on PerkinElmer spectrometers to assure compatibility and the highest performance. To prolong the life of a Lumina Hollow Cathode Lamp (HCL), we produce lamps with larger internal volume so that a greater supply of fill gas at optimum pressure is available. The larger the lamp, the greater the inert gas volume — and the longer the lamp lifetime. The information from the built-in electronic lamp timer can be accessed easily from the AA Syngistix software of the PinAAcle Atomic Absorption Spectrometers.
All our hollow cathode lamps are warranted to light and emit the spectra of the element indicated for two years or 5,000 milliampere-hours of operation from the date of the shipment, whichever comes first.
