PANalytical releases benchtop ‘out-of-the-box’ solution for XRF analysis of milk powder
PANalytical launched the new Epsilon 1 XRF (X-ray fluorescence) spectrometer for the analysis of milk powder on 16 January 2014. Designed as the most powerful benchtop spectrometer in its class, the new Epsilon 1 provides a compact and cost-effective ‘out-of-the-box’ pre-calibrated solution for the analysis of potassium, calcium, iron and zinc in milk powder. This release is the latest in PANalytical’s range of Epsilon 1 systems dedicated to key applications, including mining, sulfur in fuels and lubrication oils.

The new Epsilon 1 offers a complete pre-calibrated solution for milk powder analysis with XRF, and includes a built-in computer, user software and a sample preparation starting kit. The system is designed with a touch screen to provide ultimate ease of use, and delivers milk powder analysis in four simple steps with minimal sample preparation. Results are accurate, highly reproducible and very cost-effective, as there is no need to purchase operating gasses or additional chemicals. Epsilon 1 is fully compliant with international food industry standards, and an additional Enhanced Data Security software package can be purchased for FDA CFR 21 Part 11 compliance.
“In the food industry, it is vital to have highly accurate, reliable results,” commented Pieter de Groot, PANalytical Corporate Marketing Director. “Epsilon 1 brings the power of XRF to milk testing, in a compact and ready to use format. The simple process ensures that non-specialists in XRF may use the Epsilon 1 with ease. Epsilon 1 offers the benefits of PANalytical’s worldwide support system and tradition of high-quality instruments in a benchtop format.”
