Elemental Suite Software

Elemental Suite is Bruker’s software for elemental analysers. It’s powered by a Linux controller and SQL database for stability and performance.

  • Save, print and report analyses easily with one click.
  • Assign permissions to users and groups.
  • Report designer and templates and flexible exporting to PDF, HTML or CSV.
  • Check the instrument’s state.
  • Standardisation history for audit trails.

You can switch to a dedicated PMI screen for positive material identification. This uses either the integrated grade library, or you can import your own. More about the metals database…
