Best results for Geology, Ceramics, Refractories, Minerals and Mining


Each geological sample is a product of the initial source material and the environmental conditions present when it was formed. These combinations lead to extreme variations in major, minor and trace element composition.

The geochemical composition of individual rock and mineral types leads to distinct characteristics which make them a valuable resource for both scientific research and commercial exploitation:

  • Mining operations (exploration, exploitation, grade control)
  • Industrial minerals
  • Raw materials for cement and building materials
  • Refractories
  • Ceramics and glass
  • Academic geochemical research
  • Archaeology
  • Environmental studies and profiling


For best results of oxides in Minerals, Refractories, Ceramics and Geological samples

GEO-QUANT Basic is the powerful analytical solution developed for the analysis of major and minor oxides in geological materials. It enables our users to utilize quickly and simply the maximum performance of the S8 TIGER Series 2 and S2 PUMA.

GEO-QUANT Basic covers a wide range of certified reference materials (CRM), including cement, clay, feldspar, limestone, dolomite, magnesite, gypsum, bauxite, sedimentary rocks, refractory and others. It provides a predefined general solution for 14 oxides: Na2O, MgO, Al2O3, SiO2, P2O5, SO3, K2O, CaO, TiO2, Cr2O3, MnO, Fe2O3, ZnO, and SrO with concentration ranges up to 100 % and is therefore the ideal solution for raw material analysis in cement plants, in geological survey labs, and for monitoring or grade control in mining operations.


Accurate and precise trace analysis in geological samples is now fast and easy

GEO-QUANT T is the powerful solution developed by Bruker AXS for geological research, industrial minerals, and environmental studies. Running on the high performance wavelength dispersive XRF spectrometer S8 TIGER, GEO-QUANT T performs superior trace analysis straight out of the box.

Using GEO-QUANT T makes trace analysis a safe and easy task in daily routine. It is based on wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence and performs trace analysis directly on solid samples. No hazardous chemicals and no acid digestion are required – sample preparation is quick, safe, and easy. GEO-QUANT T is simple to operate: just prepare the sample, start the predefined measurement, and get instant results. All corrections are done automatically during the evaluation.
