Bruker Nano GmbH

Fast trace element analysis with TXRF

The Top 3 Advantages
1

Simultaneous multi-element trace analysis, including halogenides

2

Analysis of smallest sample amounts in the nanogram or microgram range

3

Simple quantification using an internal standard without daily calibration

Quantitative and semiquantitative element analysis of liquids, suspensions, solids and contamination

The S2 PICOFOX is a transportable TXRF spectrometer for ultra-trace element analysis. Due to its complete independence of any gas or cooling medium, the analyzer can be used not only in the laboratory but also for on-site analyses in the field. It's working principle is based on total reflection X-ray fluorescence (TXRF) analysis. The use of monochromatic radiation and total reflection optics leads to the following benefits of the S2 PICOFOX:

- Reduced absorption and scattering effects in the sample matrix enable an easy quantification by internal standards.

- Short detector to sample distance leads to an enhanced fluorescence yield.

- Due to the reduced background, detection limits are several orders of magnitude lower.

- Extremely low sample amounts of liquids and powders can be precisely quantified.
