Itrax XRF Scanners


Dear friends and colleagues,

With the worldwide impact of pandemic COVID-19 crisis, we are in a unique situation where our families, businesses and personal life have to adapt to rapid changes.
Based on the European Union polices and the decisions of the Swedish authorities, Cox Analytical Systems has the responsibility to decrease the risk of our employees by applying working from home, preventing travels and extension of sick leaves.
Our Cox team is trying our best to fulfill our commitment to our users, partners and suppliers. We encourage our users to access our support and service through remote support. We will also ensure the availability of spare parts and possible replacement deliveries.
Due to the restrictions of safety and COVID-19 regulations, we may have to experience a reduced factory capacity and office hours with uncertainties. Please do not hesitate to contact us for updates and we will respond as soon as we can.

Cox Analytical Systems is a leading provider of XRF (X-Ray Fluorescnce) scanners for Continuous Scanning XRF, CS-XRF. We build scanners by scientists for scientific work in research and industry, scanners that maximize your analytical possibilities and the information that you can pick up from your samples. Still, these scanners are straightforward and easy to use. With these instruments you can scan along long samples to determine the variation of a wide range of elements along a scanned track. Our Itrax CS-XRF scanners retrieve a wealth of information in short time, non destructively and cost efficient. A deep understanding of x-ray physics have resulted in several cutting edge constructions. Itrax stands for XRF scanners with unique constructions that offer several competitive advantages. These analytical instruments find their applications in scanning drill cores as well as wet sediment cores or even wood, within fields like Geology, Petroleum Engineering and Research, Mineral Exploration and Research, Forestry, Environmental Research, Paleoclimate Research, etc.

If you need a XRF scanner that offers high sample throughput and analytical quality, you have come to the right place. These scanners also offer scanning at variable scanning resolution, analyses without touching the sample surface, a wide chemical element range, very good detection limits, and different scanners adapted for different sample types and needs.

Cox Analytical Systems have been supplying analytical instruments since the 90's, and was founded by a group of researchers specialized in XRF. This knowledge continues to prove itself in several unique constructions, all having cutting edge performance. We keep pushing the limits for CS-XRF scanning again and again.

Below you find a table of some basic features of our different instruments, as a help to select the right scanner for your needs.

The table to the left clarifies some of the basic features of the Itrax scanners. More details are found in the description of each instrument, under Product Line in the menu.

Leading CS-XRF Scanners for Continuous XRF Scanning

Itrax XRF Scanning sets the standard for Scanning XRF and meets high requirements by innovative solutions achieved through deep XRF knowledge


The advantages of Itrax XRF scanning

Continuous scanning with XRF, CS-XRF, is a fast growing technique, and the reasons are that this technique offers a combination of several useful features; continuous information about a wide range of chemical elements from large samples, a sample detail that is high enough for many applications, fast and precise analyses, a minimum of sample preparation, and capacity for quantitative results. A core can be scanned in short time, without missing anything and without a labor intense sample preparation.

The graphs below show two element profiles from a multi element scan of a core.  The two graphs, one in red and one in black, each display the same Manganese profile, as recorded in two consecutive, continuous scans. Each profile contains 3,000 measurements with a spot size and step of 0.2 millimeter. Each spot was measured during one second only.The average Manganese concentration is ~0.07%. We challenge you to find a scanner that does it faster and with better repeatability.




The Itrax XRF Scanning applications include fields like exploration for oil, gas and metals, as well as research in geology, forestry and environment. Itrax instruments also support the strong need to understand our current and future climate, by reveling detailed historical climate data from sediments as well as wood. Our scanners are thereby found in research and education as well as in the industry. Over the years, several hundreds of scientific articles have been published based on data from these scanners.
