The Bruker TRACER 5i Handheld XRF Spectrometer is a sophisticated elemental analysis system complimented by a proprietary 40mm² Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) with 140 eV @ 250,000 cps Mn Kα. The automated internal 5-position primary beam filter wheel features pre-installed filters. Incorporating a proprietary SDD allows the Bruker TRACER 5i to provide high speed data acquisition, better resolution than traditional SiPIN detectors and light element sensitivity. Powerful laptop-based analytical software offers live-time spectral display, intended to optimize your analysis in every application of the device. Bruker TRACER 5i models also offer customizable filters and secondary targets to provide even more sophisticated analysis. Versatile in design as well as features, the Bruker TRACER 5i supplies an interactive touch screen, a TrueTouch trigger switch and an EasyAccess™ rail mount. The mounting bracket incorporates a tripod to allow precise three-dimensional positioning of the analyzer.

This device is capable of fulfilling a wide variety of elemental analysis needs. Archaeologists can apply the analyzer to distinguish minerals in everything from ancient paths to artifacts and metal workers' shops. Agricultural scientists are able to study the mobility of certain nutrients in plants or the effects of migratory metals caused by climate change on farming. With a Bruker TRACER 5i in hand, art conservationists are capable of discerning minerals in pigments, which can be essential to the authentication process.
