  • First use of miniaturized x-ray tubes in a one-piece hand-held XRF analyser
  • First and only isotope-based hand-held XRF analyser that never requires source replacement
  • First hand-held XRF analyser equipped with He purge for direct analysis of Mg, Al, Si, P, and S in metal alloys
  • First hand-held small-spot XRF analyser
  • First and only hand-held XRF analyser to feature a 50kV x-ray tube
  • First SDD analyser capable of detecting light elements in air without the need for helium purge or vacuum

The company has been awarded numerous patents and has received many honours and awards, including three R&D 100 Awards.
