How to choose the right analyzer for you

When it comes to choosing or upgrading an analyzer for PMI, you should evaluate your options so that you’re prepared for the future. With new technologies like LIBS (laser induced breakdown spectroscopy) emerging, it’s always good to make sure that you're getting an analyzer fit for purpose.

Choosing a LIBS analyzer over your trusted handheld XRF might save you money, and also brings you instant productivity gains so that you can get through a batch of 500 items in no time.

Here’s a quick comparison of a handheld LIBS analyzer vs a handheld XRF:
