Cartesian geometry for trace level sensitivity
Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) analyzers for non-destructive elemental analysis of sodium (Na) through uranium (U) — in solids, liquids, powders and thin films — from parts-per-billion (ppb) levels to 100%. Rigaku NEX CG delivers rapid qualitative and quantitative determination of major and minor atomic elements in a wide variety of sample types—with minimal standards:
Unlike conventional EDXRF analyzers, the NEX CG was engineered with a unique close-coupled Cartesian Geometry (CG) optical kernel that dramatically increases signal-to-noise. By using secondary target excitation, instead of convention direct excitation, sensitivity is further improved. The resulting dramatic reduction in background noise, and simultaneous increase in element peaks, result in a spectrometer capable of routine trace element analysis even in difficult sample types.
Novel software reduces the need for standards
NEX CG is powered by a new qualitative and quantitative analytical software, RPF-SQX, that features Rigaku Profile Fitting (RPF) technology. The software allows semi-quantitative analysis of almost all sample types without standards—and rigorous quantitative analysis with standards. Especially well suited to the semiquantitative determination of elemental content in complete unknowns, the superior analytical power, flexibility and ease-of-use of the NEX CG add to its broad appeal for research, industrial and in-plant monitoring applications.
