Can anyone obtain high quality results without the need for extensive training or special skills? Yes, thanks to TouchControl™!

This is because with TouchControl we have consistently favored easy, intuitive operation. The times of never-ending explanations, manuals that weigh a ton and operation with adventures in body positioning belong to the past. With TouchControl, any user can perform measurements jobs on the S8 TIGER.

Using the touchscreen this is done as follows: First, select the application and key in the sample ID. You can also add additional information, like preparation or sample weight. Then simply start the measurement and view the results on the monitor. But it can be even easier: An operator places a sample in the loader and taps the touchscreen once; this starts a predefined automatic application – and that’s it.

With the touch of a few buttons the S8 TIGER makes your working life simple and easy.


  • Easiest operation due to intuitive touchscreen interface: Three steps to accurate results!
  • No operator training required
  • Standalone operation in tough environments (no PC, mouse or keyboard)
  • Unmatched data integrity: Routine analysis is separated from advanced tasks like calibration, evaluation, and extended reporting
  • Online language switch with free selection: English, German, French, Chinese, Russian, Spanish, Korean, Turkish, Portuguese, Italian,…
  • Tailored for industrial environments, ”round-the-clock“ operation

SampleCare - Easy, safe and reliable

Thanks to SampleCareTM you can rely on the S8 TIGER 100%. SampleCare constantly protects all important system components from contamination, which might lead to incorrect results or in the worst case to system stoppage. Our S8 TIGER with SampleCare prevents this safely in 4 ways:

The DuraBeryllium tube shield protects the head of the X-ray tube; the mask changer and the vacuum seal protect the goniometer chamber. If, by chance anything should have gone wrong during preparation, and the sample breaks or leaks out, it is not a problem. System components are well protected, easy to access and can be cleaned with little effort.



  • Low maintenance and high instrument uptime due to unique protection during loading and unloading:


    • Two integrated contamination shields for tube and goniometer protection
    • Dust reservoir

  • Unique protection during measurements


    • DuraBeryllium™ shield for tube window protection
    • Unique vacuum seal with high transmission window for goniometer protection
