Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, announced today it will demonstrate at Pittcon 2010 the Thermo Scientific Niton XL2 Series, the latest innovation in its industry-leading portfolio of handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers. The mid-range Niton® XL2 analyzer makes XRF technology accessible for a wider range of applications. The company will showcase the Niton XL2 Series at Thermo Scientific booth 2757 during Pittcon 2010, being held February 28 - March 5, in Orlando.

"From boosting productivity in scrap metal recycling to screening consumer goods such as toys and apparel, our XRF analyzers are playing an increasing role in improving profitability, compliance and consumer safety," said Bob Wopperer, director of marketing and business development for Thermo Fisher Scientific's handheld XRF products. "Now, with the Niton XL2, we can meet a broader range of cost and performance needs across manufacturing QC, mining and exploration, lead paint analysis and more."

Handheld Niton XL2 and award-winning Niton XL3 Series XRF analyzers are purpose-built for taking measurements anywhere, any time, with accurate results available in seconds. These easy-to-use, nondestructive instruments provide integral storage of all test results, which are encrypted and tamper-proof. Multiple communication options are incorporated, including Bluetooth® wireless and USB and serial ports.

Thermo Scientific Niton XRF Analyzers

Thermo Scientific Niton analyzers are lightweight yet rugged instruments designed to save significant expense over traditional laboratory testing by delivering results in the field, in real-time.

* Replacing the award-winning Niton XLt analyzers, Niton XL2 Series analyzers are ergonomically designed; feature a daylight readable display with large, intuitive icons; incorporate customizable menus for ease of use, multi-language options and a standard analytical range of more than 25 elements. They are ideal for analyzing metal alloys for scrap recycling or final product QC, grade control, plant operations and near-mine exploration, and for screening electronics and consumer goods for lead.

* Niton XL3 analyzers offer enhanced features, including a choice of higher-performance X-ray options designed for specific industry applications. With an optional integrated charged-couple device camera and small spot feature, users can capture and store sample data from components and tiny sample areas for later reference, making it ideally suited for screening toys, apparel and jewelry.

* Niton XL3 GOLDDTM analyzers offer a step up in sensitivity and measurement times. It is the tool of choice for scrap metal recycling, with its superior performance for tramp and trace element analysis. For advanced mining exploration, the instrument's low detection limits help identify anomalies at or below the earth's average crustal abundance, something previously not possible with a handheld XRF analyzer. Users will also experience improved detection limits for all elements in environmental applications, including target elements such as chlorine and sulfur in sediment and arsenic in soil.
