Epsilon 1 is built for the characterization and analysis of any type of sample in many industry segments such as cement, cosmetics, environmental, food, forensics, metals and coatings, mining and minerals, nanomaterials, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, polymers and RoHS-2.

A number of out-of-the-box solutions are available for specific analytical needs. Those industry versions are pre-calibrated in the factory and ready to use: 

Robust and flexible quantification

Epsilon 1 can be calibrated using reference materials that match the composition of the routine samples. These dedicated calibrations result in accurate data with high precision. Epsilon 1 can be calibrated for a wide variety of industry applications.
Epsilon 1 is a star-performing benchtop XRF instrument for the analysis of major, minor and trace elements from sodium to americium, across the periodic table.

Non-destructive analysis

The measurements are carried out directly on the sample itself with little to no sample preparation. Since XRF is a non-destructive technique, the sample can also be measured subsequently by other analytical techniques, if required.
Non-destructive analysis

Maximum sensitivity

The thin window Ag anode X-ray tube, designed and manufactured by Malvern Panalytical, ensures high quality and sensitivity. The 50 kV X-ray tube and generator is ideal for exciting heavier elements, resulting in faster analysis times and higher accuracy.
Maximum sensitivity

Easy communication

USB and network connections for use of standard computer peripherals for extended use, application development and seated operator.
Easy communication

Atmospheric variations

Low-energy X-ray photons characteristic of sodium, magnesium, aluminum, silicon, phosphorus and sulfur are sensitive to air-pressure and temperature variations. Built-in temperature and air-pressure sensors compensate for these atmospheric variations, ensuring excellent results whatever the weather.
Atmospheric variations

Spillage protection

In order to shield the delicate heart of the system from spillage, a protection foil is in place. In case of spillage, the foil can be replaced easily by the operator.
