X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer IonicX

Identity Testing of Ionic Salts within a Minute


The new compact XRF spectrometer IonicX for the first time allows simple and fast ID testing of pure ionic salts and NaOH pellets. This wasn’t possible with the technologies available as handhelds so far (NIR, Raman, FT-IR). Instead of time-consuming analytic procedures in the off-site laboratory, results are now instantly available on-site, e.g. in the warehouse. Just transfer a sample into the accessory sample cup, run a measurement, and read the result on the device’s screen. That’s it! This mobile on-site procedure remarkably accelerates the ID testing.




  • Mobile system for usage in the warehouse.
  • Results within a minute.
  • Ready to analyse NaCl, KCl, CaCl2, MgCl2 and NaOH pellets.
  • Easy-to-read PASS/FAIL results on the device.
  • Minimal footprint compared to benchtop -systems.
  • 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
  • USB, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.

Areas of application

Identity testing of incoming goods in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.
Checking for false batches.
Control of production intermediates.
