Food Safety & Agriculture applications using handheld XRF analyzers

Safe and nutritious food is of primary concern to everyone, from the farm to the table. The recent prevalence of contaminants and adulterated, counterfeit or fraudulent food has led to an increase in public awareness and government regulations.

Simple, routine and sophisticated science-based methods enable a reliable, precise, accurate, transparent and harmonious decision making process for safe and nutritious food the world over.

Bruker’s portable XRF solutions offer multi-element analysis with off-the-shelf or customized methods to provide actionable results at any stage of the food production process – from the presence of required elemental nutrients to threats from elemental and metal contaminants.
