Bruker Corp., Germany, launches its S8 Tiger Series 2, a next-generation wavelength dispersive x-ray fluorescence spectrometer that is said to be the most versatile WDXRF tool available for advanced quantitative elemental analysis.  

Thanks to HighSense technology, it delivers the optimal sensitivity for all elements from beryllium to americium. New enhanced analyzer crystals, the HighSense counting electronics, and the close coupling beam path, combined with the HighSense x-ray tubes, deliver a maximum intensity for fastest time-to-result, lowest detection limits, and best analytical precision.

With high resolving WDXRF technology and optimal detection of light, medium, and heavy elements based on the new HighSense beam path, the XRF2 mapping tool of the S8 Tiger Series reportedly delivers best sensitivity, smallest spot size, and highest resolution for small spot applications.

Simple, intuitive start of samples are guaranteed with the multilingual TouchControl interface. The XRF2 mapping tool offers unrivalled analytical performance: Down to 300 μm spot size (FWHM) and 100 μm step size. With up to ten times higher sensitivity due to HighSense mapping optics, the it is ideal for the elemental mapping of majors, minors, and traces.

With the WDXRF goniometer, the S8 TIGER delivers better resolution and more efficient light and heavy element detection than EDXRF based mapping systems.
