The M4 TORNADOAMICS brings together the ultra-fast high resolution elemental distribution analysis of Bruker's M4 TORNADO spectrometer with the powerful mineral identification and classification software AMICS (Advanced Mineral Identification and Characterization System).
Especially large geological samples, e.g. drill cores and hand samples as well as thin sections, can easily be analyzed down to the micrometer scale making the M4 TORNADOAMICS a powerful system in mining and geosciences. With its ability to measure unprepared samples at low to atmospheric pressure, it provides mineral phase results in the shortest time frames.
The AMICS software provides all the tools to determine modal mineralogy, mineral distribution and calculated assay of geological samples.
Combining the M4 TORNADOPLUS, boasting a light element X-ray tube and dual large area light element silicon drift detectors, with the AMICS software allows the range of elements to be extended from Na down to C. This means that the M4 TORNADOPLUS significantly improves the capability to differentiation of carbonates, nitrides, oxides and fluorides. Furthermore, an optional He-purge system helps analyzing hydrated specimens, while the optional drill core or thin section holders make setup and exchange a breeze.
