The Only High-Precision Laser-Based Guns

Harnessing the power of LIBS: Handheld Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (HH LIBS), the Z is the ONLY high-precision laser-based gun for sophisticated analysis of ultra-low elemental concentrations in alloys, ores, brines and powders, to basic material or scrap sorting.


World’s Fastest, Portable, High-Precision XRF Guns

Harnessing the power of X-Ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy (XRF), the X is the world’s lightest, smallest, fastest high-precision family of X-ray guns. Weighing barely 3 lbs., they’re lightning fast, and can be used all day long without fatigue.


Both Technologies
in OneBox

Both the Z and X handheld analyzers run on the same software platform, operating system, have the same user interface,  same battery, and same charger making training and operation a breeze. Get them both when you purchase the OneBox package.

Industries We Serve

Our industry-leading handheld analyzers are at work across every major industry.

Academic & Scientific

Handheld analyzers expanding applications for in-field measurements of elements, minerals, and compounds in corporate, research, and government laboratories around the world. Chemistry, geology, physics, archeology, labs and field research teams.


Handheld LIBS and XRF analyzers for in-field analysis for all RCRA and EPA Priority Pollutant Metals, and the first HUD-accepted XRF lead paint analyzer with no radioactive sources, no isotope replacement.


Handheld LIBS and XRF analyzers for the complete NDT & PMI package, with carbon testing capability (LIBS only), size, speed, connectivity, test data management and reporting, and range of testing applications.

Scrap Metal & Alloys

Handheld analyzers designed and built by people with 20+ years experience in the scrap sorting industry, featuring the X-550 with Aluminum App and Z-901 with argon-purge for mill-ready aluminum scrap.


Breakthrough analyzers, leading with the X-555 with the 1st 55 kV X-ray tube, the Z-903 offering full elemental coverage from H to U, and the groundbreaking Z-9 Liquidator Lithium Brines analyzer.

Electric Vehicles & Strategic Metals

Handheld LIBS and XRF analyzers specifically built for the electric vehicle and strategic metals markets. Full elemental coverage, ideal for exploration, production and recycling of lithium and REEs.

Food & Agriculture

Handheld LIBS analyzers for soil and plant health as well as food authentication. Soil organic carbon (SOC) measured rapidly and accurately without the need for spectral soil libraries or lab conditions.

Recycling of Catalytic Converters (CAR Cats)

Accurate measurements of Pt, Pd, and Rh for the recycling of catalytic converters. Highly sought-after metals are even more valuable when they are accurately quantified in seconds.

Lead Paint

The X-550 Pb is the first non-isotope handheld XRF with accepted HUD PCS at three action levels. No isotope replacement costs or isotope disposal costs. Analyzer never loses speed over time.

RoHS Market

XRF Analyzers with next-generation connectivity, test data management, and reporting for the full range of compliance testing applications, including RoHS, Halogen Free, CPSIA, and lead paint in children’s playgrounds.

Precious Metals

The X-5 XRF is optimized for non-destructive testing of gold and silver materials and other precious metals. It features the industry’s latest hardware and software at a high-value price point.

Business Reviews

Hear from businesses across every industry talk about their success with SciAps

“After 14 years of teaching the 40-hour Lead Inspection class and performing countless field inspections, I can say the SciAps X-550 is the best device I have used. This is our 3rd manufacturer, going from Niton to Viken to SciAps and the ease of operation made this purchase worth it. Yesterday I spent 9 straight hours testing 25 apartments. At the end of the day, I had over 1200 readings. The battery life was great. I was impressed that when I did change batteries the unit doesn't power off and force you to recalibrate, just switch and go. I am a gadget guy, I like to have all the newest and latest pieces of testing equipment for the various types of environmental testing we perform, and I was hesitant at first about the investment, but after the grueling day of testing yesterday....well worth the investment. I do not represent SciAps and I do not get any kickback from them for this post. But my colleagues who follow me deserve to hear an unbiased opinion. Thanks, SciAps for making my job easier.”
Jamie Papian, Certified Indoor Environmental Consultant at Iowa Lead & Asbestos Safety | Alliance Environmental Services
“SciAps hands down has the best and most responsive service out of any company.  They are always there to support our company if and when one of our units go down.  We have used XRF units from all the major companies, but have made the switch to all SciAps (currently five units).  They read aluminum alloys faster and more accurately than any other XRF.  We are happy to have found a partner in SciAps and look forward to seeing what they produce next for the metals recycling industry.”
Jonathan Bubier, Director of Trading and Operations at Joseph Freedman Company
“I wanted to take a moment to let you know that we appreciate all the support we have been given from SciAps. Richie and David have provided outstanding customer service and support every time we have called on them.  Good customer service and support in our industry is not what it should be in many situations, but these guys have exceed our expectations.”
Mark J. Burton, President of Burton NDT
"We are immensely pleased with our partnership with SciAps. Their exceptional service and support, coupled with their innovative product lines, truly set them apart in the industry. The SciAps team consistently demonstrates a commitment to excellence that exceeds industry expectations. Their cutting-edge approach and unwavering dedication make them an invaluable asset to our operations. It's a privilege to work with such a forward-thinking and reliable partner."
Maurice Eddy, Director of Operations and Sales, NDT-RVI at Pine Environmental
“These machines can analyze quick!  And their service is speedy too—unmatched service”
Rob Chadbourn, Warehouse Manager at Harding Metals
“Traditional radioactive isotope technology presented numerous challenges and a severe case of “Time Share” anxiety. SciAps X-550 Pb XRF with X-ray tube and detector technology is a Game Changer. It meets all three HUD PCS Action Levels (0.5, 0.7, and 1.0 mg/cm2) with no inconclusive ranges or tests and all without the regulatory and the financial burdens of XRF’s containing a radioactive isotope. Also, no increasing sampling times due to a steadily decaying radioactive isotope allow Professionals to work at peak efficiency. The costs of both instrument ownership and disposal can now be calculated with confidence. RAECO Rents and those Professionals we support have been overwhelmingly happy with the field performance of the SciAps X-550 Pb XRF.”
Randy Walkowiak, Sales at RAECO Rents
“I have been an associate of SciAps for 8-10years now and am familiar with the equipment line. I was fortunate to have exposure to the development of the LIBS instrument on a customer level. I think the product is the current leader in the analyzer market with great customer service from both the technical personnel as well as the local sales force we have had support from. I also have a great relationship with Brian Wilson which has been for more than a decade now, always helpful and informative to our company. I’m glad to have SciAps and associates in our corner.”
Gregg Ancona, Site Safety Coordinator at Premium Inspection and Testing at Acuren
“Hope to do more business with you going forward, you have a great product.”
Scott Riggs, Quality Manager - Gulf Coast at
Ferguson Industrial
“I just wanted to take a minute and talk about our experience with Sciaps. I have been using the Sciaps X-505 for over a year now, and we could not be happier with the unit and their customer service. The X-505 is an awesome upgrade from our old unit, as it has dual digital cameras, it runs on an Android platform making it more user friendly and easy to use , faster and lighter. Any difficulty we may have ran across that we needed assistance with was easily taken care of with a simple call to the Sciaps crew and they got right on it. Great customer service and great product.“
Chad Bennett, QC Inspector - Tricor Metals
