Bruker Selects Blue Scientific as UK Agent for Micro XRF

We are proud to announce that Blue Scientific has been appointed by Bruker as the exclusive agents for Bruker’s Micro X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) product range throughout the UK and Ireland.

Bruker Micro-XRF

Micro XRF is a non-destructive technique for elemental analysis of a diverse range of samples, including inhomogeneous and irregularly shaped specimens. The product line consists of four instruments:

  • M1 ORA and M1 MISTRAL– Compact tabletop analysers for layers, coatings, precious metals and jewellery.
  • M4 TORNADO – Composition and element distribution analysis, delivering a wealth of information for materials applications including corrosion, catalysis, solar cells, coatings and failure analysis, as well as geology, life science and forensics.
  • M6 JETSTREAM – Fast analysis of large area samples. Portable, flexible instrument designed for geology and failure analysis.

These new additions further expand our ability to provide complementary technologies for your research in materials applications. For example in geology, micro-XRF complements Bruker’s micro-CT imaging (also distributed by BlueScientific). Micro-XRF offers the ability to investigate bulk chemical analysis of both major and trace elements, whereas micro-CT is used for looking at internal structure, at micron resolution and beyond.

Tom Warwick, co-director of Blue Scientific, says: “We are pleased to add micro-XRF to our portfolio, building on our existing partnership with Bruker and enabling us to provide complementary technologies for our customers.”

Bruker is a worldwide leader in scientific analytical instruments for research and quality control. Bruker’s cutting-edge instruments are used by academics and researchers worldwide, with outstanding performance and pioneering features.
