Core Analysis


The Itrax XRF scanners from Cox Analytical find their main use in applications related to Geology, Mining and Exploration, Oceanography, Paleo Climate and Environment. These XRF scanners allow you to scan along different types of cores in order to study how a wide range of elements vary in concentration along cores. Sample types include bedrock and mineral drill cores, sediment cores, wood cores, etc. Offering cutting edge analytical performance, these instruments provide a large amount of quality data in short time, with a minimum of sample preparation. Analyses are non-destructive and can provide information with variable analytical spot size, all the way down to the sub-millimeter scale. Fully quantitative capacity for all detected elements as well as x-ray radiography and optical imagery adds to the benefits.
