XRF: Measure almost any element in almost any matrix

X-ray fluorescence (XRF) provides one of the simplest, most accurate and most economic analytical methods for the determination of elemental composition of many types of materials. Indispensable to both R&D and quality assurance (QA) functions, our advanced and unique WDXRF products are routinely used to analyze products from cement to plastics and from metals to food to semiconductor wafers. Rigaku offerings range from high power, high-performance wavelength dispersive WDXRF systems, for the most demanding applications, to a complete line of benchtop EDXRF and WDXRF systems.

RAMAN: Identify organic materials and polyatomic inorganic materials

Raman spectroscopy can be used to effectively and efficiently identify and distinguish between different materials in liquid and solid forms, including organic materials and polyatomic inorganic materials (e.g. oxides and polyatomic salts like phosphates, sulphates etc.) The identification can be accomplished in as little as 20 seconds from collection of data to analysis report. Packaging materials such as polymer bags, glass bottles, flasks and vials do not interfere with the measurement, allowing the user to screen materials by non-contact, non-destructive analysis, without needing to open containers.
