Geological Survey of Finland (GTK)
The Geological Survey of Finland officially opened its new scanning micro-XRF mineral analyser facility in October 2021.
“I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the smooth delivery, installation, testing and training on our M4 Tornado. Everything went according to the plan and we are extremely satisfied with the services that were afforded to us. The system is working well and is already greatly appreciated by our staff.
In particular I would like to mention Dr Andrew Menzies, who came over from Berlin to give us our Application Training. Andrew worked tirelessly with two separate groups (“Operators” & “Users”) to explain and demonstrate the workings of the system and the intricacies of the software. Many of my colleagues are very experienced mineralogists, and yet he was still able to show them aspects that they were not familiar with.”

What is your application?
Our application includes the characterisation of oil and aqueous phases from different processes at different scales.
Why did you choose BlueScientific?
Several years of good collaboration with BlueScientific played an important role in the selection.
How’s the service and support?
Even though organised online, the training was carefully planned and all the questions from our technicians and researchers were answered.
So far we needed to contact the technical service a couple of times but their immediate response allowed us to keep the instrument running and getting reliable data to monitor our processes.
“Interaction during the sales process was very professional and extremely efficient. The experts provided scientific data that helped and supported the selection of the right instrument for our application. The instrument was delivered in timely manner and the installation performed by BlueScientific’s experienced personnel was very smooth.”
