The next level for Geochemistry: The X-550 Geochem

March 11, 2024

We’re pleased to introduce the X-550 Geochem. Designed for rugged, all-day testing in the most demanding exploration climates, the X-550 Geochem features an integrated fan that powers on when required to deliver high duty cycle operations in the hottest of climates. The X-550 Geochem offers the following element suites through three selectable, automated X-ray source settings:

Beam 1: 40 kV, Analyzes the bulk of the transition and heavy metals: Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn, As, Se, Rb, Sr, Y, Zr,Nb, Mo, Ag, Cd, Sn, Sb, Ba, Ta, W, Hg, Pb, Bi, Au*, U, Th

Beam 2: 10 kV, Analyzes major metals and low atomic number elements: Mg, Al, Si, P, S, K, Ca. 

Beam 3: 50 kV, Analyzes key pathfinders and several light rare-earth elements* (LREEs): Ag, Cd, Sn, Sb, Ba, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm

*by request only 

How does the X-550 Geochem compare to our competitors and our other analyzers?

Need to analyze Li or other light elements?

Check out our Z-903 LIBS analyzer which lets you measure ultra-light elements like Li, C, B, and Be in just a couple of seconds.

Interested in Handheld Micro Analysis?

The Z-903 is the only handheld LIBS analyzer in the world designed for geochemical analysis. With a laser spot size of 100 um, the Z-903 makes it easy to analyze the geochemistry of specific minerals, veins, or inclusions in the field or in the lab.

Packaged together with shared accessories in the OneBox, the X-550 Geochem and Z-903 provide optimal performance for virtually every element, anywhere on the planet for a fraction of the cost of lab testing.
