Contaminant analysis has become increasingly important for manufacturing and quality control departments in a wide variety of industries, such as foods, electrical/electronics, and raw materials. In the field of contaminant analysis, EDX spectrometers are mainly used to analyze metals, due to their performance for analyzing inorganic elements. Shimadzu EDX spectrometers are used in a wide variety of fields because of their superior general applicability and operability. With increasingly smaller target areas being analyzed, customers have submitted an increasing number of requests to use Shimadzu EDX spectrometers to accurately analyze even smaller samples.
In response to these requirements, Shimadzu developed the Small Spot Analysis Kit based on the concept of enabling higher-accuracy analysis of small spots without changing current operating methods. Shimadzu is working to provide solutions that support contaminant analysis.
