Oxford instruments X-MET8000CG


SKU: TEP0081 Category:


The X-MET8000CG handheld energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) analyser provides rapid and reliable regulatory compliance screening of consumer goods, from raw materials, to components, to finished products, at various stages: incoming inspection, stock inventory, checks of imported goods, and manufacturing quality control.
For manufacturers, retailers and importers, the X-MET8000CG improves the regulatory compliance management process by preventing costly rejects, reworks or recalls, identifying restricted or hazardous elements before they enter the manufacturing process or supply chain.
For these companies a focus on regulatory compliance means:
Increased operational transparency
The putting in place of reasonable testing programs (RTP)
The optimised geometry of the large-area SDD (silicon drift detector) and X-ray tube delivers exceptional speed and superior sensitivity, enabling low limits of detection for optimum screening accuracy, meaning a reduction in the number of costly analyses performed at thrid-party laboratories. A few of the many advantages of the X-MET8000CG are:
Conforms to IEC Method 62321, as per Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) rules
Easy-to-use – Intuitive, icon-driven user interface requiring minimal operator training, in Regulated Goods mode, the analyser automatically selects the right calibration and the customisable display provides colour-coded pass/fail messages
Powerful data management – Store up to 100,000 results including spectra and sample image, share them using Wifi and print them via Bluetooth
Flexible report generator to create professional customised reports including results, spectra, company logo, operator information, camera image etc.; included as standard
XRF is a non-destructive technique, so that items tested can be kept for future records or re-introduced into the supply chain
Minimises downtime – Quick-swap analysis window: no tools required to change if broken or dirty
Maximises productivity – Up and running in seconds, results in seconds and a 10-12 hours battery life enable a high measurement throughput
Truly portable – small with great ergonomics, the X-MET8000CG only weighs 1.5kg (with battery). Take the analyser to the sample, not the other way around!
Optional small-spot collimator (3mm diameter) to isolate specific features from surrounding materials and measure them accurately
With its low cost per analysis, the X-MET8000CG makes the perfect tool for 1st party screening, alongside 3rd party laboratory testing.

With Regulated Goods mode, the X-MET8000CG automatically detects the sample matrix and selects the right calibration.
Handheld XRF enables the rapid screening of regulated elements for compliance to the following directives and regulations:
CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) of 2008
RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)
WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment)
ELV (End of Life Vehicles)
Proposition 65
EN 71-3
