Benchtop WDXRF Elemental Analysis
Measure oxygen (O) through uranium (U) in solids, liquids, powders and alloys. Wavelength dispersive (WDXRF) technology for unsurpassed elemental resolving power and superior light element performance.
Avantes introduces our smallest instrument ever, the AvaSpec-Micro!
It measures only 38.5 ml, about the size of a matchbox. The Micro will make its worldwide debut at the Laser show in Munich, Germany (13-16 May).
This newest addition to the CompactLine family of spectrometers comes very recently after the launch of the AvaSpec-Mini. The new AvaSpec-Micro is only 30% of the size of the Mini.
