May 8, 2019 0 By FM

Malvern Panalytical has introduced the next generation of Epsilon 1 X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometers.

The upgraded Epsilon 1 integrates a high-power X-ray tube and a new detector, which together deliver a threefold improvement in sensitivity, along with rapid measurement capabilities.

Trace metals in pharmaceuticals, foods, soils and metal ores can now be quantified more quickly and accurately than ever before in an instrument of this size, the company said in a statement.

Epsilon 1 is available in a number of pre-calibrated versions which are dedicated to specific applications.

The Epsilon 1 Lube Oil delivers ASTM 6481-compliant elemental analysis of unused lubricating oils; the Epsilon 1 Sulfur in Fuels quickly quantifies sulfur content in fuels according to ASTM D4294-10 and ISO 20847; the Epsilon 1 Academia enables rapid characterization of unidentified samples, using Omnian software for analysis; and the integrated camera in the Epsilon 1 for Small Spot Analysis simplifies the investigation of very small objects, inclusions or inhomogeneities.
