X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer IonicX

X-ray fluorescence spectrometer identifies ion salts in 120 seconds

Portable X-ray fluorescence spectrometer IonicX with test stand

The new compact XRF spectrometer IonicX for the first time allows simple and fast ID testing of pure ionic salts. 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.
  • Analysis in two minutes.
  • Analyzes most typical salts, e.g. NaCl, KCl, ZnO and MgCl2.
  • 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.
