PANalytical and OBLF jointly announce that a formal agreement has been signed for the exclusive distribution of OBLF’s optical emission spectrometers by PANalytical.

PANalytical X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometers and OBLF optical emission spectrometers (OES) perform complementary roles in the analysis of solid metals. When deployed together, XRF and OES allow for the measurement of dozens of elements over concentration ranges from sub-ppm to 100% within seconds. This combination of speed and versatility makes XRF and OES ideal for laboratories where metals analysis is a primary task. In addition to numerous automated laboratory installations featuring both XRF and OES ‘stand-alone’ instruments, the co-operation between the companies has already resulted in the development of TEAMworks, a fully automated laboratory system combining OES, XRF and robotic sample handling. For these combined systems, PANalytical has taken full responsibility for installation, training, maintenance, and application support for both its own X-ray spectrometers and OBLF’s optical emission spectrometers.

“The combination of OBLF’s exceptional product line with PANalytical’s unparalleled customer support promises an unsurpassed customer experience with optical emission spectrometry” says Dr. Peter van Velzen, CEO of PANalytical. Mr. Bringfried Overkamp, owner and CEO of OBLF, adds that “he is delighted that this experience is now available to a greater part of the world”.

Both companies share a philosophy of quality first, and both operate a quality management system in accordance with ISO 9001¬2008. PANalytical, in agreement with OBLF, is committed to serving the XRF and OES needs of the metals analysis laboratories in the countries where OBLF is currently not represented.
