For Over Two Decades,
IXRF Has Distinguished Itself as an
Innovator in X-Ray Microanalysis

Over the past two decades, IXRF has been designing and manufacturing high-end X-ray Microanalysis systems that are fitted to Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM). Almost 10 years ago, IXRF developed SEM-XRF microscope attachments allowing broader elemental analysis coverage. In 2014, IXRF launched our ATLAS series of general purpose, micro spot energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (microEDXRF) spectrometers for the measurement and mapping of elements from sodium (Na) through uranium (U).
