EDAX Pairs Element Silicon Drift Detector with New APEX Software Package For Tabletop Scanning Electron Microscopes
Latest SDD Product Line Designed to Serve Industrial Market
MAHWAH, NJ – EDAX, Inc., a leader in X-ray microanalysis and electron diffraction instrumentation, has introduced new APEX Analysis software for its Element SDD silicon drift detector for tabletop scanning electron microscopes (SEMs), a product line focused on serving the needs of the industrial market.
The APEX software package for Element was developed with a primary focus on industrial needs and ensures high-end results, combined with ease of use. Built on fundamentally new quantification algorithms, APEX accelerates and simplifies compositional analysis and delivers high-quality data processing with accurate and reliable results.
With its touchscreen capability, the APEX interface is very user-friendly and can be customized for a specific workflow, offering a wide choice of layouts, colors and data report formats. It has a modular architecture and can be interfaced with external application packages.
The Element SDD delivers powerful analytical capability in a compact package, maximizing performance and flexibility, while providing streamlined operation to guarantee fast results and easy operation. It offers excellent resolution and market-leading throughput. It is designed with a silicon nitride (Si3N4) window to optimize low-energy X-ray transmission for light element analysis. The Element SDD’s advanced design allows for a small footprint for the growing tabletop SEM market.
“The APEX Analysis software package is a perfect extension of our customized product line for industrial applications,” comments Oleg Lourie, Senior Product Manager for EDS. “Element with APEX Analysis software, provides an easy-to-use microscopy tool, that offers fast and efficient results for industrial analysis needs.”
EDAX will introduce the Element SDD for tabletop with APEX Analysis software at the Microscopy and Microanalysis 2016 Conference, July 25 to 28, in Columbus, OH, (Booth #1114). Please click here to schedule a demo at the booth or click here to download a product bulletin.
