This instrument can be used for the study of heterogeneous materials where both the elemental analysis and the elemental spatial distribution (maps or profiles) is needed. The analysis can be carried out on several materials of different nature: biological samples and organic specimens as well as inorganic matrices such as soils, metals, composites, rocks, cultural heritage, and so on… The analysis is non-distructive and samples can be analysed without any preparation.
