The S2 PICOFOX utilizes total reflection X-Ray Fluorescence (TXRF) in a compact, transportable unit that offers the best solution for ultra-trace element analysis where detection limits fall into the ppb and ppm range. Easy to use functionality, the S2 PICOFOX is able to perform quantification, and semi-quantification multi-element microanalysis. Perfect for both laboratory and in-field requirements this instrument analyses a diverse range of sample types including (but not limited to) extremely low quantities of liquids and powders, suspensions, solids and contaminations. The use of monochromatic radiation and total reflection optics greatly reduces background noise ensuring detection limits are low. The short distance from the detector to sample in the S2 PICOFOX also enables an enhanced fluorescence yield.
