X-PAND Sensitive Analysis of Particulate Matter

Most convenient price/performance solution in the market for elemental analysis

  1. General Details

    The X-PAND analyzer can test for inorganic air pollutant species while supporting compliance with the US-EPA’s air quality regulation requirements. Along with the power to quantify the deposits of airborne particulates up to 60 elements, the X-PAND is fast, accurate, easy to use, and achieves low detection limits. With the ability to analyze filters “as received” without destruction and with no preparation or extraneous handling, the instrument ensure that the air filter sample can be preserved for future reference.

    The innovative X-PAND analyzer uses patented Wide Angle Geometry (WAG™) option to provide high x-ray flux, leading to optimal excitation of samples. Through the use of secondary targets with computer varied voltages and emission currents, the X-PAND provide monochromatic excitation energy, increased signal-to-noise ratio, superior sensitivity, selective excitation of elements of interest, and extremely low detection limits, due to the near absence of background radiation.
