BTX-II

The BTX-II has the full XRD mineralogical analysis capabilities of the BTX Profiler, but only rudimentary XRF information gleaned from the CCD detector; it essentially aids in the XRD mineralogical identification and analysis as opposed to providing the full, rigorous elemental ED-XRF analysis found in the BTX Profiler. The BTX Profiler combines full XRD and full XRF capabilities. It uses single sample measurement or unattended multi-sample measurements with an integrated autosampler. Applications include: counterfeit drug screening, pharmaceutical discovery library building, and fire or explosives forensics.
