Researchers and scientists in microscopy labs are challenged to obtain consistent, reliable and rapid answers when analyzing the most complex chemical and elemental samples
Analytical microscope users conducting research and routine analysis can now perform more comprehensive and efficient microscopic studies on complex samples using a new X-ray microanalysis software package that complements electron microscopy imaging instruments.
Thermo Scientific Pathfinder X-ray microanalysis software, which debuts at Microscopy & Microanalysis 2016 (Booth #1402) at the Columbus Convention Center, is designed to process incoming data from X-ray detector technology and provide a real-time statistical map of the chemical constituents within a sample.
Scientists in fields such as metallurgy, geology, semiconductor, failure analysis, product development and applied research can reduce their analysis time from hours to minutes when pairing Pathfinder software with their scanning electron microscopes and transmission electron microscopes.
“Researchers and scientists in microscopy labs are challenged to obtain consistent, reliable and rapid answers when analyzing the most complex chemical and elemental samples,” said Kevin Fairfax, business director, surface analysis and microanalysis, for Thermo Fisher Scientific. “Pathfinder software is designed to deliver actionable results. It takes advantage of advanced computing power and features an intuitive design that supplements an electron microscope image by rapidly identifying the chemical phases in the sample. Pathfinder represents an industry shift toward push-button operation that eliminates the need for subjective user interpretation.”
