Portable unit enables sample analysis in remote locations

Determining elemental compositions on-site from far-flung mining and geological field operations is a substantial challenge. The Spectroscout portable energy dispersive x-ray fluorescence (ED-XRF) analyzer provides accurate results in real-time. Replete with a shoulder strap, the 12 kg unit is encased in rugged housing with its x-ray source protected. It includes a large sample compartment, an x-ray tube, an onboard processor and a high-yield battery pack. An optional integrated video system allows for precise spot testing and image storage.
