SPECTRO is a leading supplier of X-ray fluorescence (XRF), ICP-OES/AES, ICP-MS, and Arc/Spark-OES instruments for science and industry. SPECTRO’s floor standing, benchtop, portable, and handheld spectrometers are used for applications in elemental analysis, trace element analysis, and environmental analysis. As a leader in the field of metal analysis, SPECTRO’S handheld XRF and portable spectrometers lead the field as elemental and environmental analyzers for applications that range from positive material identification (PMI), RoHS testing to trace metal analysis.
Our instruments are used by a wide variety of industries. For example, in the metals industry SPECTROmeters are used for the analysis of ores, slags, coating thickness or precious metals. In the chemical industry raw materials, effluents, products and more have to be analyzed. In the environmental sector SPECTRO instruments are applied e.g. for soil, water, dust, airborne pollutants or ash analysis. The pharmaceutical industry relies on SPECTRO analyzers with regards to incoming and outgoing product quality control, trace metals analysis, species and isotope analysis and others. For geology applications our spectrometers are used for both field analysis and laboratory analysis, for example to determine trace elements and major constituents in ores, concentrates and tailings or to detect patterns in rare earth elements. Furthermore, SPECTRO's analyzers are well suited for the analysis of food and animal feed — both in the laboratory and at the production line.
These are just a few examples of the many industries that SPECTRO serves. For more detailed information, select an industry from our Industries list.
