High-performance XRD at an affordable cost

Our cost-effective Thermo Scientific ARL XRD instruments offer everything from routine quality control for industrial labs to advanced research in R&D and academic laboratories. A wide range of materials from minerals to pharmaceutical compounds can quickly and accurately be analyzed. These instruments can easily be adapted for different sample types and analytical conditions in seconds—without the need for time-consuming re-alignment.

Next-level routine analysis

ARL X’TRA Companion is a θ/θ Bragg-Brentano benchtop X-ray diffractometer perfectly suited for routine control. Its state-of-the-art configuration uses advanced technical features to deliver accuracy, precision, safety, and ease of use. As a plus, it comes with a one-click data treatment software to ensure reliable results.

A large selection of sample holders

Our versatile line of ARL benchtop XRD instruments can be adapted for several sample types in various analytical conditions. Sample adaptors are easily switched in a matter of seconds without the need for tedious re-alignment. Accessory stages include everything from fixed non-spinning sample stages to automatic sample changers with spinning sample holders to temperature-controlled stages. 

Compliance with regulatory requirements

Thermo Scientific SolstiX XRD Software with Security Suite enables pharmaceutical companies to comply with the US Federal and Drug Administration’s 21 CFR Part 11 requirements. Using this software, laboratories can authenticate users, obtain true digital signatures to record responsibility and provide data integrity protection, and obtain complete audit trails—ensuring they maintain the security of electronic records.
