Handheld LIBS Analyzer for Metal Alloys

The handheld LIBS (laser induced breakdown spectroscopy) analyzer, mPulse, is optimized for the rapid sorting of metal alloys. It identifies a wide variety of metal alloys at the press of the trigger and measures elements, light and heavy in only 1 second. Its point-and-shoot operation allows for the testing of large or small samples such as shavings, turnings, granules, cables etc.
