The M2 BLIZZARD can be operated by staff that has received introductory training only. The user-friendly software can be set up to perform all measurements automatically. Autofocus and measurement can also be initiated by foot switch or touchscreen operation. Samples are positioned by means of a plastic tray and the measurement spot can be accurately determined using the built-in video microscope.
Advanced safety features
The enclosure of the M2 BLIZZARD provides optimal radiation protection. Using the plastic tray to move samples in and out of measurement position is an additional safety feature.
Both bulk samples and layer systems can be analyzed with the M2 BLIZZARD. Bulk sample analysis uses a standard-based model. Layer analysis can be done with a Fundamental Parameter model that can be refined further by using standards.
Speed, accuracy and precision in analysis
Excitation with a high-performance micro-focus tube and collection of fluorescence radiation with an efficient silicon drift detector result in short measurement times and provide accurate concentrations down to trace levels. The stability of the systems warrants precision and comparability of results over longer times.
The M2 BLIZZARD features XSpect Pro and XSpect Data for analytical standards management, measurement setup, analytical method (application) design, analysis, reporting and data archiving.
