Eastern Applied Research, Inc is pleased to announce the addition of handheld x-ray fluorescence technology to the various lines of ED-XRF analyzers offered. Oxford Instruments has selected Eastern Applied to act as a distributor of its portable XRF analyzers throughout the North East of the United States.
With over twenty years experience in sales and service of x-ray fluorescence technology, this is the first Handheld XRF available through Eastern Applied. The addition of the Oxford handheld analyzer is in response to clients’ interest in portability for common applications like hazardous substance detection (RoHS screening). However, it will also enable the sales organization to expand its application reach for general material identification and environmental testing needs
Managers of Oxford Instruments and Eastern Applied Research began discussions recently because the potential relationship was a fit for both organizations. “They (Oxford) were looking for a sales company for the North East that had experience in x-ray fluorescence, which is a technology that we specialize in,” commented Shawn Kramer, President of Eastern Applied Research. “We have looked at other handheld systems but none match the performance of the Oxford Instruments line. We are especially excited about the report generation capabilities of the systems, which compare favourably too many bench top systems on the market.”
In addition to sales of the X-Met 7000 handheld analyzer from Oxford Instruments, Eastern Applied Research is now offering services for all brands of handheld x-ray fluorescence. Routine certifications, diagnostic services, and repairs are available through the headquarter facility. The technical staff realized the need for cost efficient handheld services and has placed a priority on reducing client costs and offering an efficient turn-around time on handheld services.
