S2 PUMA - Academia and R&D

Academia/R&D

Fundamental research from agriculture to material science to zooarchaeology can bring with it a wide variety of sample materials of all sizes and forms for elemental analysis.

This demands for an instrument, which is flexible and powerful enough to accommodate these samples and deliver best analytical performance. At the same time the instrument must be easy to operate if accessed by a wider circle of users.

The S2 PUMA carousel offers these benefits: With its 11 or 12 position sample tray, it can handle solid and liquid samples in any prepared form and with the sample tray removed, even large bulk samples fit into its sample chamber (45 x 42 x 10 cm).

The powerful 50 W X-ray tube together with the HighSense™ LE detector are a mighty combination for high intensities and count rates and fast measurement times, even for light elements.

An integrated HD camera and a selection of small-spot collimator masks make it possible to analyze small areas on a bulk sample with spot sizes from 1 to 28 mm.

The SMART-QUANT FP fundamental parameter solution enables the user to quickly identify the elemental composition of any sample. The operator can even re-evaluate the results after the measurements with different parameters without having to re-analyze.
