The Itrax instruments are high performance scanners that allow you to get a clear view of how different chemical elements are distributed along samples like drill cores, sediment cores and wood samples. All elements from Magnesium and heavier can be determined. The Itrax XRF scanners MC and SC can even register Na.
The chemical elements that can be detected with these instruments include elements from Magnesium and up all the way to the heaviest elements. Also more odd elements like the Rare Earth Elements can be determined, in any concentration from bulk and down to the PPM level. The capacity to analyze directly on the samples with sensitive and non-destructive technique makes a good basis for detailed sample interpretation and is a natural starting point for planning of further work on the samples when that is needed. The flexible lateral analytical resolution allows the user to go from overview scans at centimeter steps to in-depth, sub-millimeter examinations with just a mouse-click. The Itrax instruments really demonstrate their capacity when it comes to the highest resolutions, offering x-ray radiographic images and XRF of highest speed and capacity, all the way down to the sub-millimeter level.
