PANalytical launches new XRF analysis software



Published March 20, 2013
Almelo, the Netherlands: PANalytical, the world's leading supplier of analytical X-ray equipment and software, is set to launch its new software for X-ray fluorescence (XRF) systems. PANalytical developed Stratos, a brand new software package, for both the Epsilon 3 and Axios spectrometer ranges. The company will also be releasing an upgrade of the FingerPrint software for the Epsilon 3 range.

Stratos – sophisticated analysis made easy
The Stratos XRF analysis software features built-in intelligence and can quickly and accurately analyze the thickness and composition of coatings, surface layers and layered structures. Multi-layer samples can be analyzed with bulk standards, without the need for in-type standards that are sometimes hard to source. Another significant advantage of the software is its flexibility and the ease of use provided by the 'Virtual Analyst'. This unique tool is a consultant for advanced method development and provides optimum measurement settings for analysis, which can be time-consuming for complex stack structures. Stratos is able to analyze more than 16 layers, depending on their thickness and composition. It is also easily combined with PANalytical’s Omnian semi-quantitative software.

The Stratos software developed by PANalytical makes daily operation easier, with a simple interface that helps new users. Stratos is available for both the Epsilon 3 range (energy dispersive, EDXRF) and the Axios range (wavelength dispersive, WDXRF). Applications of Stratos include the automotive industry, wafers and solar cells and the coating and packaging industry.

FingerPrint software upgrade for more convenience
FingerPrint software is the second generation of PANalytical’s successful material identification software for the benchtop Epsilon 3 range of spectrometers. The unique combination of FingerPrint software with Epsilon 3 sets new standards for industrial and process control applications. The upgraded FingerPrint software makes it even easier for material testing where the actual composition is not of interest and analysis speed is important. The addition of simple pass/fail reporting means that expert knowledge is no longer required to interpret the results and application of PCA (principal components analysis) allows cluster analysis in 3D visualization. FingerPrint software is used in materials identification, comparison and quality control and can be used in a wide range of applications, for example in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food and petrochemical industries.
