Epsilon 1 Pharma
Pharmaceutical catalyst analysis at the push of a button
Looking for an accurate and fast instrument for the cost-effective analysis of pharmaceutical catalysts?
The Epsilon 1 X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometer is the ideal analytical solution for quantification of ruthenium, rhodium, palladium, iridium, and platinum in pharmaceutical materials. Considerable savings in time and cost are two of the many benefits XRF can bring to pharmaceutical development.
The Epsilon 1 is calibrated with an out-of-the-box solution for easy quantification of the most commonly used catalysts in the pharmaceutical industry. The system produces fast, cost effective, precise and accurate data without the need for additional chemicals or operating gasses.
Epsilon 1 is a star-performing benchtop XRF instrument for the analysis of ruthenium, rhodium, palladium, iridium, and platinum in pharmaceutical materials.
The obtained concentrations for all five elements in comparison with ICP data demonstrate excellent accuracy and precision.

Standards (Reference materials)
Epsilon software is the XRF analysis software platform that is used with PANalytical’s range of Epsilon 1 and Epsilon 4 benchtop EDXRF systems.
Omnian software enables users to achieve the best possible analysis when dedicated methods or certified standards do not exist.
A FingerPrint software module combined with an Epsilon EDXRF system is ideal for material testing when analysis speed is important but the actual composition is not of interest.
