HORIBA Jobin Yvon is pleased to
announce that it has reached an agreement with xk, Inc. to become the
exclusive provider of SLICE software to the XRF community.
SLICE, the Spectral Library Identification and Classification Explorer,
is designed to archive, query, and compare x-ray spectra, and
represents a revolutionary new approach to materials analysis.
It was developed under an FBI contract to save time and
improve the accuracy of evidence identification, and to create an
advanced archiving tool, allowing spectra, images, and text to be
seamlessly linked. Searching the database allows the spectra
to be interrogated quickly and efficiently. It has become a
widely-used tool within Forensic laboratories where virtually any
material can be encountered, and its use is now being extended to
contaminant analysis in a wide range of industries, including
pharmaceutical, automotive, engine wear and semiconductor.
HORIBA Jobin Yvon's XGT micro-XRF analysers are used across
these fields, and in combination with SLICE offer the analyst a
complete solution for materials identification.
