The Thermo Scientific ARL X’TRA is an advanced multi-purpose system designed for academic or industrial analytical laboratories. It is ideal either for routine analysis or highly demanding applications requiring dedicated accessories. Analytical performance, ergonomics and safety are the major characteristics of this outstanding instrument.

The design of the ARL X’TRA is based on a vertical θ-θ Bragg-Brentano geometry for convenient sample preparation and sample handling. With the unique Peltier detector technology, ultimate performance in both angular and energy resolution can be achieved without using b-filters or monochromators.

Natural or manufactured materials of organic or inorganic chemistry can be characterized with this technique.
