On-site XRD analysis for Geology and Mineralogy


One of the most important applications of X-ray diffraction is the identification of the phases in soil samples taken during an exploration. Among others, the results of these analyses help you decide whether it is worthwhile to return to the site for further investigation.

What if these analyses could be done already in the field?

Save significantly on lead time and cost
Allow for pre-selection of a sample. Only the most interesting ones need to be sent to a laboratory.
Immediately yield the results where and when you need them
Therefore, we developed the PLANET!
