Bruker has launched its new S8 Tiger Series 2, the next-generation Wavelength Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometer. The S8 Tiger Series 2 is a versatile WDXRF tool for advanced quantitative elemental analysis in industrial and academic materials research, as well as in industrial quality control (QC) of materials.
The new S8 Tiger Series 2 introduces novel HighSense technology offers an exceptional linear dynamic range, thus enabling higher precision levels for process and quality control in cement, minerals, mining, metals, glass and ceramics applications. In addition, measurement times are significantly reduced, sample throughput is increased and time-to-result is improved, typically by 25%.

The S8 Tiger Series 2 also features XRF2 small spot mapping for detailed maps of elemental distributions in materials. With a 300 µm spot size, XRF2 offers the highest spatial resolution available in WDXRF. This makes the S8 Tiger Series 2 a suitable system for both industrial QC labs as well as for industrial and academic research and methods development laboratories.
In addition, the S8 Tiger Series 2 new HighSense X-ray optics improves both sensitivity and spectral resolution. This benefits a wide range of applications, including recognition of foreign particles, optimization of mineral beneficiation processes in mining, analysis of material properties in metals, semiconductors and nanotechnology.
The S8 Tiger Series 2 offers intuitive and robust operation with a new multilingual TouchControl interface. The S8 Tiger Series 2 is designed for high sample throughput and easy integration into automated analytical laboratories. Optimal instrument uptime and low cost of operation are ensured with the unique SampleCare feature that protects system components while running liquid petrochemical samples, or powders.
