The only benchtop EDXRF which can professionally be integrated into fully automated laboratories, the S2 PUMA Automation delivers results on elemental analysis 24/7. The instrument can be connected either via conveyer belt or robot arm link-up to the preparation module. The sample feed interface is at the instrument’s backside, so that the XY Autochanger capabilities remain fully available. Buffer positions inside the instrument in addition to the EasyLoadTM XY tray ensure smooth handling of automated and out-of-line samples at any time.
The HD camera can be used for sample verification: Samples in automation rings run overnight are often not available any more in the morning when staff returns. As a helpful validation tool, the pictures taken automatically by the camera can help to identify e.g. a failed sample surface and thus provide valuable information to clarify suspicious analysis results.
The LIMS-compatible instrument can communicate through Bruker’s dedicated AXSCOM software package with process control units and ensures full integration into existing or new laboratory environments.
