Horizon, the new TXRF Benchtop spectrometer manufactured by GNR


Horizon is the new Benchtop Total Reflection X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer (TXRF) for multi elemental qualitative and quantitative analyses for major constituents and ultra-trace in suspension as well as liquid samples. 

TXRF, based on the same principles of traditional X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF), minimizes or totally eliminates matrix effect, allows simultaneous multi-element ultra-trace analysis and pushes the instrumental detection limit down to ppb range from sodium to plotonium. 

Horizon is the state of the art of the Total Reflection X-Ray Fluorescence spectrometer and it is equipped with all the most modern technical components, which grant accuracy, precision, safety and easiness of use. 

It is a powerful tool for trace analysis at limited cost. 

  • Environmental Analysis

  • Nutrients 
  • Dietary supplements and beverage analysis 
  • Quality control of pure substances and industrial products 
  • Authentication in pharmaceutical annd forensic laboratories 
  • Tissue and biological liquids in clinical chemistry 

Acquisition Software 

Written for Windows 7 is the program designed for the control of the TX 2000 System. It includes some new features, like the batch programming of a set of measurements. The program can control different kinds of detectors and devices attached to the instrument. Control panels for scintillation, linear position sensitive detectors and XRF X-GLAB SDD detector are integrated.

Analytical Software

  • Least square Marquardt fit procedure for the area calculation (spectral analysis)
  • Automatic/manual search function
  • Manual or automatic calibration of energy
  • Quantification via an internal standard using theoretical and experimental sensibility curves for total reflection
