Handheld EDXRF Elemental Analysis System

A non destructive elemental analysis tecnique for quantification on the field of nearly any element (from Magnesium to Uranium). 


GNR is proud to introduce the new ProSpector, the latest XRF system to join our family of portable, Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometer systems.

Like all GNR products, this portable, handeld EDXRF elemental analysis system is designed to be intuitive and user friendly.

  • The system utilizes a 7.2 Vdc Liion battery. Under normal use, it has an operating time of 8 hours before charging is required.
  • The new ProSpector operates at a high voltage of 40 kV but can be set for up to 50 kV, and has a detectable range of Cl to U. The light element option has a detectable range from Mg to U.
  • ProSpector operates under control of the HP iPAQ PDA with 4-inches high resolution touch-screen display, providing high flexibility and usability of the system.
  • The optional lab stand allows using the new ProSpector as a laboratory grade instrument under PC or laptop control.
