Meet the Z-300 – the world’s only handheld that analyzes lithium in soils, ores and brines.
The Z also measures other low atomic number elements that X-ray can’t, including Be, B, C, F, Na, plus the many transition and heavy metals that X-ray also measures. The Z uses the technique of laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). LIBS is an optical technique and is therefore very sensitive to the low atomic number elements. No X-rays means no travel restrictions or licensing headaches. There are now dozens of Z-300 analyzers being used globally for lithium exploration projects. If you need to measure lithium or other low atomic elements in the field, the Z-300 is your solution.
Element Pro: Need to know what elements are present on your sample without performing a complicated digestion and lab analysis? Element Pro performs super quick tests (< 3 seconds) to give a full qualitative analysis of all elements detectable in the sample including light elements like Li, Be, B, C, F.
Geochem: Use our factory-built calibrations or build your own matrix-matched calibrations for quantitative analysis of prepared samples. See how it’s been done for Total Organic Carbon in Soil and Lithium in Brines.
Geochem Pro: Take advantage of the 100 um analysis spot and XY raster capabilities to build element distribution maps of your sample in less than 1 minute per analysis. These maps allow you to quickly and easily visualize the changes in chemistry around veins, inclusions and mineral boundaries.

Meet the X-550 – process more samples than ever with this field portable XRF.
The SciAps X-550 sets a new performance standard for handheld XRF. Weighing 2.8 lbs. (1.3 kg) with the battery, it’s the lightest, fastest, most articulate X-ray gun ever made. It delivers the small size, blazing speed and high precision of the SciAps X Series in a perfectly balanced device. It’s fast on all alloys, including aluminums. The X-550 uses the industry’s most powerful X-ray tube, operating up to 3x the power in the Beam 2 setting compared to the SciAps X-505 and other handheld XRF analyzers. The unique geometry and tube power optimize performance for low atomic number measurement applications including sulfidic corrosion (low Si), phosphorus and sulfur, and aluminum alloys, as well as for residuals analysis per API 751 and 5L specifications.
Mining: Designed for bulk analysis of all kinds of geological materials, the Mining app utilizes an advanced algorithm to correct for matrix effects and provide the most accurate results possible. With optimized internal geometry, a high powered X-ray tube and the most sensitive silicon drift detector, this app will provide results with excellent precision for elements as light as Mg, Al and Si. Users can further fine tune their results by utilizing the Derivative and Site Cal features which allow for simple, site specific calibration corrections. Talk to us about our 50 kV option for improved performance on REEs and gold pathfinders.
Soil: The Soil app uses three different tube conditions to achieve the highest level of sensitivity for elements P–U. The Soil app is calibrated primarily for low-density matrix types like soil, but can be applied on all kinds of materials including rocks, pulps and even liquids. Ideal for environmental testing and screening of things like RCRA metals and other hazardous elements.
