XGT solves this problem

Samples that cannot be subjected to a vacuum can be analyzed by the XGT-5000WR at normal atmospheric pressure.

Analysis can also be started quickly for samples containing water, including living samples, with no sample preprocessing.

Smile
  • Element Analysis of Food Products (Element Distribution, Foreign Substance Analysis, etc.)
  • Living Samples Such As Plants and Animals
  • Tissue Samples Such As Teeth and Internal Organs

EXAMPLE

Analysis of an ulcerated section of the stomach of a rat.

Measurement Conditions

X-ray Tube Voltage 30 kV
X-ray Tube Current 1.0 mA
X-ray Radiation Diameter 100 ┬Ám
Sample Tissue from a rat stomach

Zinc components are said to contribute to the healing of gastric ulcers. In order to verify the effects of zinc, rats having gastric ulcers were orally given medication containing zinc, and the micro-quantities of elements in the area surrounding the ulcer examined. Rats not given the zinc medication also showed the same type of improvement as rats given the medication, which was thought to be due to the natural healing powers of a living organism. When testing the tissue samples, if the samples are dried, the zinc distribution could be altered. Therefore, the XGT is highly effective for use in the analysis of tissue samples from living organisms.

Sample Preprocessing

The rat stomach is cut at the center.

After immersion in formalin, the tissue sample is sandwiched between two sheets of film and analyzed.
