Thermo Fisher Scientific Introduces New Thermo Scientific Niton XRF Analyzer for Mining and Exploration

Niton XL2 Series Analyzers Deliver Rapid, On-site Geochemical Analysis while Maintaining Point and Shoot Simplicity

(PresseBox) ( Mass/Billerica, )
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, is pleased to announce the launch of the Niton® XL2 Series handheld x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer as the newest member of its family of Thermo Scientific Niton analyzers for mining and exploration. Thermo Fisher Scientific is the world`s leading manufacturer of handheld x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers.

-More than 2,000 of our Niton XRF analyzers are already deployed in the global mining industry. With the launch of the Niton XL2, mining companies of any size can access a range of products that are engineered from the ground up to withstand harsh mining environments, reduce laboratory costs and improve efficiency,said Bob Wopperer, director of marketing and business development for Thermo Scientific Niton Analyzers.

Wopperer continued, "What"s more, we now offer users the choice of an out-of-the-box field mapping option or the flexibility of seamless integration with their existing mapping packages. Either way, our analyzers excel at storing results that are matched to GPS coordinates. Then these results can simply be downloaded to existing GIS and data analysis packages."

A Family of Thermo Scientific Niton XRF Analyzers

Handheld Niton XL2 and award-winning Niton XL3 Series XRF analyzers are purpose-built for taking measurements anywhere, anytime, with accurate results available in seconds, saving significant expense in comparison to traditional laboratory testing. These easy-to-use, nondestructive instruments provide integral storage of all test results, which are completely tamperproof. Multiple communication options are incorporated, including Bluetooth* wireless, USB and RS-232 serial communication ports.

They also come standard with Thermo Scientific Niton Data Transfer (NDT©) software, a suite of data management utilities that allows users to set operator permissions, print certificates of analysis to document results or operate the analyzer remotely from a PC. The NDT file format preserves and protects the data from each sample analysis, ensuring that this data is not unintentionally or intentionally compromised.

- Replacing our award-winning Niton XLt analyzers, Niton XL2 analyzers are lightweight yet ruggedly built to withstand severe environments. Ergonomically designed and featuring daylight readable icons, the Niton XL2 incorporates customizable menus for ease of use, multi-language options and a standard analytical range of more than 25 elements from sulfur to uranium. It is particularly suitable for mine mapping, development and grade control where accurate elemental composition data is required across a large number of samples.

- Niton XL3 GOLDD analyzers deliver major improvements in sensitivity and measurement times, as much as 10 times faster than conventional Si-PIN detectors and up to 3 times more precise than conventional SDD detectors. Easily analyzing elements from magnesium to uranium, without requiring helium or vacuum purging for light elements (Mg, Al, Si, P, S), the Niton XL3 GOLDD delivers fast, accurate analysis for intensive metals exploration, even helping to identify anomalies at or below the earth`s average crustal abundance.

Our customers are served through corporate resources and a dedicated network of more than 70 distributors and 30 factory-trained service centers around the world to provide the most effective customer service possible.
