PANalytical - Epsilon 1 Benchtop X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Spectrometer

Small and powerful

The Epsilon 1 is a fully integrated energy dispersive XRF analyzer consisting of a spectrometer, built-in computer, touch screen and analysis software. Powered by the latest advances in excitation and detection technology the Epsilon 1 is a star performer in the low-cost benchtop instrument class. Epsilon 1 produces fast, cost-effective, precise and accurate data with minimal operator dependence and sample preparation. The total running cost is therefore much lower than other analytical techniques such as AAS, ICP and wet chemical methods that are costly and also require a dedicated skilled operator. Epsilon 1 is built for the characterization and analysis of any type of sample in many industry segments such as cement, cosmetics, environmental, food, forensics, metals and coatings, mining and minerals, nanomaterials, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals and polymers.

A number of out-of-the-box solutions are available for specific analytical needs. Those industry versions are pre-calibrated in the factory and ready to use:

  • Sulfur in fuels in compliance with ASTM D4294 and ISO 20847
  • Additives in lubricating oils in compliance with ASTM D6481
  • Catalyst residues in pharmaceuticals
  • Milk powder
  • Mining
  • Research and education

DKSH is the exclusive distributor in Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
