The ARL QUANT'X EDXRF spectrometer offers the ultimate in performance, versatility, and reliability of elemental analysis. Its compact desktop design, close-coupled optics and advanced electrically cooled detectors allow for unsurpassed analytical precision in a wide dynamic range from ppm to percent elemental concentrations.

The ARL QUANT’X EDXRF has become even more powerful!  Equipped with a latest generation high performance SDD detectors, the QUANT’X handles high count rates at excellent resolutions, and brings superior performance from light to heavy elements. The ARL QUANT’X shows better sensitivities across the periodic table improving precision and detection limits by factor 2. Alternatively, the counting time can be reduced by factor four on average, increasing sample throughput significantly!

The SDD500G detector brings the latest advance in detection technology and a further performance boost to the ARL QUANT’X spectrometer. The SDD500G delivers spectacular improvements in sensitivity for light elements such as fluorine, and extends its analytical range down to carbon.
