QUANTAX ED XS System w1000px


Simplicity delivers affordable science

QUANTAX ED-XS is a new integrated EDS & EBSD system enabling entry level SEMs with affordable and powerful analytical capabilities previously reserved for expensive traditional EDS & EBSD systems.

A 6th generation 30 mm2 XFlash® Silicon Drift Detector (LN2-free cooling) provides an excellent balance between high throughput rates and light element detection capabilities. The highly capable XFlash® detector is complemented by the newly developed and world’s most reliable and easy-to-use EBSD detector: e-Flash XS.

The two detectors are mounted on a port adapter designed for optimum sample-to-detector geometry during simultaneous EDS and EBSD acquisition.  Bruker’s high performance ESPRIT 2 software completes the package to create a powerful, yet easy-to-use analytical tool. Data is acquired, processed, and evaluated using the same software, thus enabling many useful interactive features.
