LAB-X5000 Benchtop XRF Launched by Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science

Dec 18 2017 Read 720 Times

Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science has launched LAB-X5000, the fastest, easiest to use and most versatile model in the 45-year history of the LAB-X. LAB-X5000 is a compact benchtop EDXRF (energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence) analyser with a streamlined user interface and the shortest measurement start sequence on the market, designed to deliver high sample throughput with quality results achieved by any operator. LAB-X5000 has been designed to measure a wide range of materials including petrochemicals, general chemicals, minerals, papers, and films in production environments, testing laboratories and mobile operations.

Analysis with the LAB-X5000 is fast and easy: the operator prepares the sample, loads it into the analysis port and simply pushes the start button, illuminated with a green LED. Results are displayed within seconds and updated throughout analysis, allowing the operator to move to other tasks instead of waiting for the final results.

The LAB-X5000 is designed for high-volume testing and includes features that ensure operators spend more time taking measurements and less time maintaining calibrations. Atmospheric compensation using internal monitors automatically and instantly corrects for changes in temperature and pressure that can affect XRF performance.

Following the reputation of the LAB-X brand for quality and reliability, LAB-X5000 is similarly designed to be durable and protects against damage caused by sample spills. The instrument, including the touch screen, has been tested for resistance to damage from exposure to chemicals and solvents, as well from physical abuse.

LAB-X5000 connects via Wi-Fi or wired Ethernet to LiveConnect, a cloud service from Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science that allows secure storage of results. This enables quality managers to instantly review results from LAB-X5000 instruments in another part of the facility and monitor results from multiple instruments spread across multiple locations. Locally, data can be transferred using a USB memory stick and printed automatically using the integrated printer.
