Fast and accurate at-line elemental analysis
Built on the experience and success of the proven Epsilon 3 range of XRF spectrometers, the Epsilon 4 is a multi-functional instrument for any industry segment needing elemental analysis from fluorine (F) to americium (Am) in areas from R&D through to process control. Combining the latest excitation and detection technologies with mature software and smart design, the analytical performance of Epsilon 4 approaches that of more powerful and floor-standing XRF spectrometers.
Epsilon 4 Anywhere
Value beyond analysis
Energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer for the elemental analysis range from carbon (C) to americium (Am) and the concentration range from sub-ppm to 100 wt%.
Use Omnian for standardless analysis, use FingerPrint for material testing when analysis speed is important or use Stratos for a rapid, simple and non-destructive analysis of coatings, surface layers and multi-layered structures. One could also use Enhanced Data Security which supports compliancy with regulations like FDA 21 CFR Part 11 or use Oil-Trace for quantifying fuel-biofuel mixtures to fresh and used lubricating oils.
Ready for any sample type
The Epsilon 4 is a robust and reliable alternative to conventional systems for a wide variety of industries and applications, even when light element analysis is of outmost importance, including: cement production, mining, mineral beneficiation, iron, steel and non-ferrous metals, RoHS screening and quantification, petroleum and petrochemicals, polymers and related industries, glass production, forensics,
pharmaceuticals, healthcare products, environmental, food and cosmetics.
Fast and sensitive
Unique detector electronics enable a linear count rate capacity to over 1,500,000 cps (at 50% dead time) and a count rate independent resolution typically better than 135 eV for better separation of analytical lines in the spectrum. This allows the Epsilon 4 spectrometer to run at full power and therefore realizes a much higher sample throughput compared to traditional EDXRF benchtop instruments.

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.
