The Z-903: The Entire Periodic Table of Elements…in Seconds

  • Corporate, Research or Government Laboratory

  • Academic Lab and Field Research, and a Teaching Tool.

Materials Science — Chemistry — Geological and Ocean Sciences – Physics – Archeology

Meet the Z: The world’s premier handheld LIBS (Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy) analyzer featuring the most advanced technology ever created in a handheld elemental analyzer. The Z-903’s spectrometer range covers 190 nm – 950 nm. It offers instant analysis of every element in the Periodic Table, for nearly all materials, anywhere on the planet. The analyzer features pre-configured Apps for specific applications (alloys, geochem, etc.). Or users may create their own custom analysis models, element lists, and calibrations. The Z-903 includes a full-featured desktop or tablet software package with spectral pre-processing, chemo-metrics, emission line identification for any element and quantitative calibration setup. The Z handheld LIBS is perfect for the lab, the classroom and the field.

Analyze Many Elements Never Before Tested with a Portable Instrument:

  • Low atomic number elements: H, Li, Be, B, C, N, O, Na, Si, P and S*.

  • Halogens:  F, Cl, Br

  • Light metals and elements:  Mg, Al, Si, P, S, K, Ca and more.

  • Transition, heavy and rare earth elements (REE’s).

*S is available for custom spectrometer extended to 930 nm.


  • Incoming laboratory samples – Quickly pre-screen to get qualitative or quantitative list of elements present, and approximate concentration ranges, prior to digestion.

  • A great tool for field studies, for instant analysis of any elements present in geochem, archeology and/or forensics samples, others.

  • Rapid elemental pre-screen of materials prior to laboratory analysis.

  • Perform the all the types of analysis of typical benchtop LIBS instrument but with a lightweight, handheld device that utilizes an easy to use and intuitive software package”

Independent Studies & Applications Research

SciAps, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of handheld XRF and LIBS analyzers, able to measure virtually every element, in almost any material. These breakthrough instruments have been expanding applications for portable, in-field measurements of elements, minerals and compounds in every major industry around the world.

Need an academic loaner? We frequently loan handheld analyzers for a few weeks or a month to academic researchers from the U.S. and Canada, so that they can perform a study or field analysis anywhere in the world. LIBS is often a preferred technique, especially for students, since operators do not have to deal with the regulatory complexities of X-ray fluorescence analyzers. And our accompanying Profile Builder software provides operators complete freedom to modify parameters. You’re not limited to factory-imposed calibrations or unchangeable multi-variant techniques. Contact us with a brief description of what you want to measure.
