Bruker’s CTX CounterTop XRF is capable of doing the same applications as the handheld S1 TITAN. In fact, all calibrations available for the S1 TITAN are also available for the CTX. The biggest difference between the CTX and the S1 TITAN are as follows:

  • The CTX is designed for small/prepared samples that can be brought to the analyzer and fit into the sample chamber. The handheld S1 TITAN can easily be taken into the field to measure large samples.
  • The CTX is safety interlocked and will not generate X-rays unless the lid is closed. The S1 TITAN has various safety features, but is considered open beam, even if used with a desktop stand.
