PANalytical AXIOS Advanced Simultaneous WDXRF Spectrometer

The PANalytical AXIOS-Advanced WDXRF spectrometer was commissioned in 2010 and is fitted with an SST-MAX X-ray sourcewith a 4kW output and can be operated at 160mA. The resulting high X-ray flux enables high sensitivity and low detection limits for light elements. The AXIOS can measure elements over wide dynamic concentration ranges and include all the elements between Be and U in the periodic table.

The AXIOS uses SuperQ software for standard-based analysis and has a standard-less software module called OMNIAN capable of giving the complete composition and quantification of most types of unknown materials.
