The unique features of the XGT-7200 have seen this innovative micro-XRF analyser widely embraced for a range of applications, including electronics, engine wear analysis, forensic science, geology, mineralogy, pharmaceutics, museums, metallurgy, biology, medicine and archaeology.
The flexible XGT-7200 micro-XRF system covers everything from macro analysis, for a general survey of a wide area, to the inspection of a specific micro area, with simultaneous XRF and transmission imaging. Its many features ensure high performance analysis with easy operation.
- Highest spatial resolution
The unique x-ray guide tube technology of HORIBA provides the highest spatial resolution micro-XRF analysis, with x-ray beam diameters down to 10 µm. The high intensity, ultra-narrow beams provided by the guide tubes allow fast, non-destructive analysis of microscopic features.
- Transmission X-ray Mapped Imaging
In combination with XRF imaging, the XGT-7200 allows transmitted X-ray images to be acquired. This can be used to perform internal structural analyses and identify regions of interest not visible to the eye. Scanning is done with a narrow perpendicular beam, resulting in clear penetrating images even for non-flat samples such as cylindrical parts.
- Dual Vacuum Modes
The XGT-7200 system offers the user unique Dual Vacuum Modes for sample analysis – switching between the two modes takes just a few seconds. In Full Vacuum Mode the entire sample chamber is subjected to vacuum conditions to ensure the ultimate sensitivity to light elements. In Partial Vacuum Mode the sample is maintained at atmospheric pressure whilst a vacuum is drawn around the detector and capillary optics. This mode is ideally suited for analysis of water containing samples such as biological tissue, and fragile archaeological/museum objects.
- Complete range of sample sizes
The accommodating sample chamber enables a wide range of samples to be analyzed, from a 10 µm spot analysis on a microscopic feature, to mapped analysis of areas as large as 10cm x 10cm.
- Integrated Data Acquisition and Analysis Software
Intuitive software allows easy control of instrument hardware, fast sample visualization and selection of measurement region, and full data analysis. Functions include automated peak identification, quantitative measurements, RGB composite image generation, line profile analysis.
