Scientific, have announced the worldwide launch of its new generation of
X-Ray microscopes the XGT-5000.
The microscope combines both surface and
transmission X-ray analysis to provide a complete elemental characterisation of
a sample in one simple step. The innovative design of the XGT-5000 allows for a
non-destructive analysis at normal atmospheric pressure. It also incorporates a
novel coaxial arrangement of the X-ray beam and the optical visual image to
enable fast and accurate sample positioning.
The ground breaking Horiba X-ray Guide Tube
(XGT) is incorporated within the system to provide a spatial resolution down to
The new capabilities and functionality of
the XGT-5000 expands X-ray elemental analysis from material research into the
emerging fields of biology, mineralogy and environmental
