Thermo Fisher Scientific Launches MagnaRay Spectrometer Creating the Integrated EDS/WDS System
Product News Aug 08, 2008
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced the launch of the first intelligent Wavelength Dispersive X-ray spectrometer (WDS), the Thermo Scientific MagnaRay™ WDS Spectrometer.
The instrument automatically combines energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) results with WDS operations using the embedded expert system. Integrated with the Thermo Scientific EDS NORAN System 7, the MagnaRay determines the elements to be analyzed simultaneous to the EDS collecting the data, providing unparalleled microanalysis results.
The MagnaRay WDS Spectrometer will be showcased at the Thermo Scientific booth #834 at the Microscopy & Microanalysis 2008 conference, August 3-7 in Albuquerque.
Building on the ten year history of Thermo Fisher Scientific’s MAXray WDS spectrometer, the new MagnaRay combines the benefits of EDS and WDS to help identify elements in a sample as well as their quantitative value.
Integration with the NORAN System 7 software means that EDS operators are already trained for WDS analyses. The benefits associated with NORAN System 7 are enhanced when combined with the MagnaRay spectrometer, offering EDS/WDS qualitative, quantitative and x-ray imaging capabilities.
