X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) Spectrometer (portable) – Innov-X Alpha 2

The Innov-X Alpha 2 portable X-ray Fluorescence (pXRF) Spectrometer allows analysis in the field or of large specimens. It is used for metal alloy determination or trace element analysis of a selected group of elements. XRF Spectrometry is used to identify elements in a substance and quantify the amount of those elements present. In different modes of operation, the portable XRF can return results on major, minor and trace levels of elements.
