Cox Analytical Systems is a leading provider of XRF scanners. 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 XRF scanners retrieves a wealth of information in short time, non destructively and cost efficient. Itrax stands for XRF scanners with unique constructions that offer several competitive advantages. These analytical instruments find their applications in scanning of drill cores, wet sediment cores and wood in 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 element range, and the different scanners are 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 is proving itself in several unique constructions, all having cutting edge performance. We keep pushing the limits for XRF scanning again and again.
Below you find a list 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 under Product Line in the menu.
Market Leading XRF Scanners
Itrax technology can bring down the cost per analysis by keeping the sample throughput and data quality at a maximum.
The advantage of Itrax scanning
XRF scanning is a fast growing technique, and the reasons are that this technique offers a combination of several usful features; a wealth of information about a wide range of chemical elements, a sample detail that is high enough for many examinations, fast and precise analyses, a minimum of sample preparation, and quantitative results.
The graphs below each show an element profile from a multi element scan of a core. 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 two graphs, one in red and one in black, display the same Manganese profile, as recorded in two consecutive scans. The average Manganese concentration is ~0.07%. Can you find a scanner that does it faster and with better repeatability?
The Itrax Scanners support a strong need to understand our current and future climate, by reveling detailed historical climate data from sediments as well as wood. Other applications includefields like exploration for oil, gas and metals, as well as research in geology, forestry and environment. Our scanners are thereby found in research and education as well as in the industry. Over the years, several hundred scientific articles have been published that contain data from Itrax scanners. You find them listed under Downloads.
