Do you need elemental analysis of small objects or small inclusions in electronic appliances, toys, jewelry, rocks or finished products? Epsilon 1 for small spot analysis, a compact X-ray fluorescence spectrometer, is the ideal analytical solution for a flexible and precise spot-on analysis.

The measuring procedure is easy and straightforward: Place any shaped sample directly in the spectrometer without the need of sample preparation. Position the requested detail above the small measuring spot with the help of a color camera, initiate the measurement and receive your results.

Due to the self-contained design and small footprint, Epsilon 1 can be placed close to the sample location, making the instrument an ideal solution for any elemental analysis in production facilities, exploration sites, at the shop counter or even at crime sites for forensic investigation.

The performance of the spectrometer meets the standard test methods required by different directives and regulations in various industry markets, like RoHS-2 for electronics and CPSIA for many consumer goods.

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

Key Features

  • Non-destructive analysis

The measurements are carried out directly on the sample itself with little to no sample preparation. Since XRF is a non-destructive technique, the sample can also be measured subsequently by other analytical techniques, if required.

  • Small analyzing spot

Small pieces or small inclusions in samples can easily be analyzed with a collimated X-ray beam. The spot size on the sample is typically 0.8 x 1.2 mm.

  • Sample positioning

With the help of the color camera and crosshair in the picture, the user can manually position the sample on the analyzing spot of the instrument.

  • Analysis report

After each analysis, a photograph of the analysis spot is stored on the built-in computer. With a single click an analysis report is generated that includes the photograph.
