About the RIGAKU NEX-QC and NEX-QC+


The RIGAKU NEX-QC offers a perfect entry-level product, yet plenty of performance.

Its Pin-Diode detector provides superior performance to standard Proportional Counter Detectors both in terms of resolution and count rates.

This allows the NEX QC to be used where other mini benchtops would struggle.

Typical applications include:

  • General waste oil screening
  • Back up to main WD-XRF spectrometers in cement plants, mines and other minerals environments where the NEX-QC can act as an advance back up tool
  • Any production control environment where a simple and robust XRF is required.
