Abstract

Flame photometer is an analytical instrument used for the quantitative analysis of alkali metals like sodium, potassium, calcium, lithium and others in biological fluids. Parts of flame photometer are needles, nebulizer, spray chamber, monochromator, and photo detectors. Needles are to suck specific volume of the sample. Nebulizer is the most important part which breaks the solution into a spray of uniform sized droplets, and it sprays the specimen into the burner. Monochromator is a device which yields a particular wavelength and screens out all other wavelength except the specific one emitted by the element to be analyzed.
