Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science Expands Its Geochemistry Handheld Analyzer Product Range With the Introduction of the X-MET8000 Geo Optimum
OXFORD, England, March 6, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science Corporation (Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science), a Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation (TSE: 8036) wholly owned subsidiary engaged in the manufacture and sales of analysis and measuring instruments, has introduced a new accessible model of the popular X-MET8000 Geo handheld XRF analyzer optimized for soil and mining grade control applications. It offers unrivaled price-performance ratio with a rapid return on investment (ROI) allowing immediate on-site decision making rather than having to send samples for laboratory analysis.
Easy to use and designed to withstand the harshest environments and weather conditions, the X-MET8000 Geo Optimum offers results in seconds with real-time data sharing for fast decision making. The revolutionary Boost™ technology delivers low levels of detection whilst the integrated GPS enables you to combine geolocation data with analyses results for flawless site mapping.
Share results, photographs and GPS coordinates on-the-go with the ExTOPE Connect app, whilst with the cloud service, you have real-time access anytime, anywhere to results. Results are stored on the analyzer, and can be downloaded to the USB memory stick or PC in a CSV or PDF format. You can also manage results from multiple X-METs with a single ExTOPE Connect account.
Mikko Järvikivi, Head of Product Management, said: “We’re adding another model to our popular X-MET range used by thousands of businesses around the world. The X-MET Geo Optimum complements our existing X-MET8000 Expert Geo handheld XRF analyzer by providing an alternative accessible option for soil testing and mining professionals. The X-MET8000 Geo range compliments other testing methods by saving time and money when it comes to on-site screening. More interesting and promising samples can then be selected for laboratory analysis to verify results.”
