Used by the world's best

Two Powerful Technologies

Our industry-leading X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and laser-based (LIBS) analyzers
are at work across every major industry.

The Z-Series

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.

The X-Series

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.

Get Both Analyzers With 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.
