New Portable SPECTROSCOUT XRF Analyzer - the Lab that Goes Anywhere

New analyzer for rapid, laboratory-class elemental analysis of environmental and geological samples.

Launched in March 2013, SPECTRO Analytical’s new SPECTROSCOUT Portable Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (ED-XRF) analyzer enables rapid, laboratory-class elemental analysis of environmental and geological samples even in remote locations.

Determining elemental compositions onsite, from far-flung mining and geological field operations to remote environmental locations, presents substantial challenges.

Real-time analytical results are essential for assessing progress. And, accuracy is essential at all detection levels.

“Weighing only 12 kilograms and carried with a shoulder strap, the new SPECTROSCOUT portable ED-XRF analyzer meets such challenges - in the field - with as much analytical power as top-grade laboratory benchtop analyzers,” explains Dirk Wissmann of SPECTRO.

“The new SPECTROSCOUT is a small instrument, but a major step forward for end users. Its precision and speed in the field allow for faster decisions and improved productivity. Many laboratory-based measurements now become unnecessary,” notes Wissmann.

This portable analyzer is ideal for onsite environmental and geological analysis. Designed for tough use, SPECTROSCOUT is encased in a rugged housing, and its X-ray source is protected.

It is both lightweight (12 kg/26.46 lb) and small (270 x 306 x 306 mm/10.7 x 12.1 x 12.1 in) and includes a large sample compartment, X-ray tube, onboard processor, and high-yield battery pack.

An optional integrated video system allows precise spot testing, plus image storage.

SPECTROSCOUT provides highly precise measurements from trace to minor and major concentrations across a range of relevant elements from heavy elements, such as uranium, to light elements, such as sodium, with rapid (typically 10 to 15 minutes) turnaround.

The analyzer also brings laboratory-class advantages, such as SPECTRO’s advanced TURBOQUANT unknown-sample analysis and optional customer-specific calibrations.
