JXA-8230 Electron Probe Microanalyzer

User-friendly PC-based operation

The EDS, which is a versatile and easy-to-use X ray detector, can be mounted. A combined WDS snd EDS system provides a seamless and user-friendly environment for analysis.

JEOL has developed a new EPMA(Electron Probe Microanalyzer), that continues a long history of EPMA development extending over neary a half century.  The JXA-8230, designed for user-friendly operations, provides for a complete range of analyses through a new, simple to use, PC-based interface.  The high-accuracy and fast speeds offered by the JXA-8230 are a result of its sophisicated hardwre developed from JEOL's EPMA technologies refined over neary 50 years.  The JXA-8230 is powerful, next-generation, analytical tool that fully meets all of the requirements of an EPMA.
