Versatile TXRF and µXRF Analyzers for Food

Elemental analysis provides key information to help assure the presence of critical and micro nutrients and the absence of toxic metals in food, plants, soil and water. Please message us now to understand how Bruker’s TXRF and µXRF food analyzers can make your food testing process both effective and cost-efficient.

 

Our portable Total Reflection X-ray Fluorescence (TXRF) analyzers provide ultra-trace (PPB and PPM) quantitative and semi-quantitative multi-elemental analysis. This is especially critical for ultra-low, but dangerous levels of heavy metals like arsenic and lead.

Our Micro X-ray fluorescence (µXRF) laboratory analyzers are able to detect micronutrients and toxic metals, and also provide easily interpreted high resolution color images of their dispersion. Elemental nutrient rich locations, even of fresh produce, are clearly visible with this spectrometer. Find out more ...

Contamination

Rice is considered the most prevalent food source of toxic inorganic arsenic in the human diet. TXRF is a valuable tool for the determination of arsenic in the ppb range in all rice products. Find out more ...

Fraud and Quality Control

Maintaining brand reputation and product quality has led to increased focus on qualifying raw materials and ingredients used in food production. The presence of abnormally high Br and Cl levels can indicate the illegal application of pesticides or adulterates during the process of food production. TXRF allows a fast and accurate detection of sub-ppm levels of halogenides. Find out more ...

Quality of Nutrition

The amount of micronutrients in dietary and sports supplements has to be controlled carefully according to FDA regulations. TXRF is well established for the quality control of various micronutrients, e.g. selenium in variable sample matrices. Find out more ...
