Automate Data Collection and Mineral Matching
The only automated mineralogy solution for micro-XRF
M4 TORNADO AMICS is an innovative new approach to automated mineralogy using X-ray excitation to collect energy spectra for mineral matching. This package matches the ultra-fast high resolution elemental distribution analysis of the M4 TORNADO and the automation and phase classification technology of the AMICS software.
Integrate M4 TORNADO AMICS into any workflow to add geochemical and mineral maps from any prepared or un-prepared samples - drill core, hand samples, billets, thin sections and grain mounts. This innovative and robust instrument captures mineral information within a textural and elemental framework.
