The new Olympus’s BTX III XRD/XRF benchtop diffraction analyzer is the ideal maintenance-free alternative to conventional XRD able to provide fast and reliable quantitative mineralogy of major and minor components. It runs without the need for compressed gas, water cooling, a secondary chiller, or external transformer, keeping the cost of ownership low.
BTX III is powered by intuitive SwiftMin® software to streamline your workflow with a single dashboard, preset calibrations, easy data export, and automatic data transfer. Operators can directly connect the instrument to any device using Ethernet or wireless capability.
Updated X-ray detector hardware runs faster and offers more intensity, leading to lower LODs.
Unlike the conventional X-ray diffraction instruments that needs sample finely grounded and pressed, the BTX small vibrating sample holder (that requires mere 15 mg of sample obtained using the supplied sample kit) convects all particles within the sample chamber, ensuring data virtually free of orientation effects.
SwiftMin® automated phase ID and quantitative software provides real-time data directly on the XRD analyzer, so you can make decisions quickly and with confidence. Boost productivity and save time on repetitive tasks with intuitive software features, including:
- One dashboard for data: see all recipes, calibration, and analysis information in a single view to speed up your workflow.
- Preset calibrations: input preset calibrations in a new password-protected lab manager screen, enabling any operator to use the analyzer and quickly get reliable results.
- Automatic data transfer: automatically send data to your network when the operator hits stop or after a preset amount of time.
- Easy data export: easily export quantitative mineralogy results for visualization or further analysis, and access raw data files using a network folder to analyze diffractograms.
