The M4 TORNADO is an analytical tool for sample characterization using small-spot Micro X-ray Fluorescence (Micro-XRF) to obtain information on composition and element distribution. It is optimized for analysis speed without compromising accuracy. It measures a wide range of samples, regardless of size and surface roughness. Equipped with a large high-speed stage it supports 2D mapping of virtually any kind of inorganic, organic, and even of liquid sample with about 25 microns spatial resolution. Its large vacuum chamber enables light element detection.
