Bruker XFlash® 630 EDS

The Bruker XFlash® 630 EDS with ESPRIT Compact software for simple or advanced Elemental Micro-Analysis

Adding EDS to your Tabletop SEM turns it into a very powerful analytical tool allowing a multitude of capabilities using advanced microanalysis features for elemental analysis. With the conical pole piece design of the SNE-Alpha the EDS signal is collected at the optimal solid angle unlike other tabletop SEM designs that have a flat or near-flat construction for the pole piece (electron beam exit to the sample chamber).

The Bruker ESPRIT Compact software provides numerous capabilities for probing the samples composition, thickness and mapping as shown in the screenshots and explanations below.

Contact Us for further discussion about the merits of upgrading to the Bruker QUANTAX 200 software for more advanced capabilities such as:

  • Metal Inclusion Analysis (Steel Cleanliness – ASTM E1245/E2142/E45)
  • Mineral Phase Analysis, Mineral Liberation, Modal Mineralogy, Petrography
  • Gun Shot Residue – GSR (ASTM E1588)
  • General Particle Analysis for Cleanliness (ISO 16431/18413, IEST 1246D)
  • Wear Particle Analysis (ARP 598c, ASTM D7416, ASTM F311/F312, ISO 16232-8, ISO 4407)
  • Environmental Particles on Filters or Wipes (ASTM D6059, ASTM E2090, ISO 14966)
  • Particulate Contamination in Injections and Parenteral Infusions (USP 788)

The Bruker Quantax 200 software offers several dedicated modules and databases to assist with accomplishing these common types of analysis typically only possible with full-size SEM but now possible with TableTop SEM systems like the SNE-3200P or SNE4500P .
