About the Rigaku NEX DE

The NEX-DE is a ground breaking high performance benchtop ED-XRF. It boasts the most rapid analysis times and unrivalled counting statistics. 

Add the 60KV tube for unrivalled excitation of toxic metals such as Cadmium, the NEX-DE is creating new opportunities for the use of XRF spectroscopy.

 XRF with 60kV X-ray tube and SDD detector

The 60kV X-ray tube and Peltier cooled FAST SDD® Silicon Drift Detector deliver exceptional short-term repeatability and long-term reproducibility with excellent element peak resolution. This  means that the best results can be achieved with very short measurment times.


The high voltage capability (60 kV), along with high emission current and multiple automated X-ray tube filters, provides a wide range of XRF applications versatility and low limits-of-detection (LOD).
