New, advanced Thermo Scientific ARL PERFORM'X WDXRF spectrometer

The new Thermo Scientific™ ARL™ PERFORM'X WDXRF spectrometer for advanced materials characterization integrates bulk elemental analysis capabilities with mapping and small spot analysis to create a solution that offers unmatched versatility and performance for the analysis of any solid or liquid sample.

The instrument provides distinct choices of X-ray power for a high-performance, cost-effective solution in any application. It benefits from a sixth generation goniometer, which is fully digitally mastered and provides the top speed, accuracy and precision, allowing fast analysis of up to 90 elements in the periodic table. ARL PERFORM'X offers the following advantages:

  • Advanced sample analysis using small spot analysis and mapping capabilities
  • UCCO technology: Ultra Closely Coupled Optics for highest performance from boron to uranium
  • Faster analysis cycle time for high throughput lab applications using XY-loader for fully automated sample management
  • IQ/OQ & Remote Diagnostics for easy installation and serviceability
