Woburn, MA, --- Innov-X’s Booth 501 at the upcoming American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Exposition* AIHce exhibit at Philadelphia will showcase how portable XRF breaks through the boundaries of ordinary laboratory analysis. The display will enable industrial hygienists and other OEHS professionals to discover portable XRF in action performing exciting tests that span the broadest gamut of industries and applications:

Lead in paint, soils, dust wipes and air filters
Environmental Field Testing
RCRA, priority pollutant metals
Clandestine Methamphetamine Laboratories
Airborne metal concentrations and TSP
Mine environmental evaluations
Residential Lead Paint PCS
Remediation Studies
Agriculture-Construction -Manufacturing-Government-Health Care-Military-Mining-Transportation

At the forefront of these and many other exciting discoveries is the technology of Innov-X leading the way. Come see the live and video demonstrations of the latest innovations—Handheld XRF analyzers, Inspector™ Series lead analyzers, High Power Mobile XRF Analyzers….and more.

New Products for Thinking in New Directions

Use handheld XRF Innov-X analyzers in demanding testing Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) applications from clan labs identification to environmental pollutants including lead, cadmium, mercury, bromine, arsenic, and others. The x-ray tube design of the “Alpha Series” provides on-the-spot, fast and precise elemental analysis from phosphorus to uranium. Innov-X’s breakthrough design uses an x-ray tube in a compact, ergonomically designed handheld unit with a PDA for unprecedented flexibility in a portable analyzer. A rear-facing display makes the units easy to read, supplementing the color I-Paq ® screen. They provide test solutions for environmental screening, welding, manufacturing, environmental remediation, and a host of NDT applications on solids, liquids, coatings and powders. The I-Paq ® PDA runs with up to 25-element software suites using fundamental parameters, spectral matching and/or empirically generated calibrations. Easy upgrades will “future-proof” the unit as well as cutting edge technology that defies obsolescence.

The “Inspector Series” enables fast, accurate analysis of lead paint and other heavy metal contaminants on surfaces, in air, liquids, filters, wipes, and soil. The new analyzers eliminate the speed loss and high replacement cost due to isotopes. Innov-X’s breakthrough design meets Residential Lead Paint PCS requirements and affords easy operation and fast readings, within 2-3 seconds. Using the PDA also enables fast data entry and on-the-spot report generation for productive inspections. Options include test stand, wipes, soil, filters, additional elements, holster, and remote battery pack.

The Innov-X portable XRF for elemental analysis meets EPA method 6200 for metals in soil, NIOSH method 7702 for lead in air filters, and OSHA methods OSSA1 and OSS1 for lead in air filters and dust wipes. The eight RCRA metals and priority pollutant metals are easily monitored on-site with the Innov-X hand held XRF.

Need a Portable XRF to Check Light Elements? Innov-X Systems introduces the Innov-X Alpha LZX featuring true mobile vacuum technology. With patent-pending vacuum technology, the same ultra portable XRF analyzer is now able to measure Mg, Al, Si and 25+ other elements simultaneously in alloys, powders, liquids and more! There are no Helium gas or compressed tanks to carry and no vacuum pumps to wear or attach. Available as new analyzers or as an upgrade, this is the most capable, most convenient and most flexible handheld XRF design ever!

Powerful Software
The Analyzer’s HP iPAQ PDA runs with software suites using factory furnished or other calibrations. Pocket PC features a color touch screen display, Windows© CE software, intuitive GUI interface, up to 1 Gb of memory, Bluetooth wireless communications, email and internet access, GPS plus many other features making the Innov-X handheld the best EHS tool available.

Detect challenging elements at significantly lower detection levels, using the high power mobile capabilities of the new X50 MobilLab ™ unit. It enables analysis of Cd, Sn, Ba, precious metals, and rare earths. Its greater sensitivity results from higher power levels of 50X typical handheld units, and opens up many challenging applications that formerly required full-sized laboratory instrumentation. It is well suited for field inspection stations and production lines, particularly for large samples of materials and parts, where one cannot wait days or weeks for lab analysis results.

About Innov-X Systems
Innov-X Systems is a vital new force in the x-ray fluorescence (XRF) industry. Their systems perform fast, accurate chemical analysis in seconds to identify, differentiate and quantify most materials by elemental composition. Founded in 2001, they pioneered handheld XRF instrumentation using a miniature x-ray tube rather than radioactive isotopes. Innov-X has rapidly expanded into many other XRF areas. These include the new SEA-Mate™ System for marine on-board fluids analysis; MobiLab X50, a portable XRF that in comparison to handheld units, delivers higher power and superior performance throughout the periodic table. Innov-X has also taken a leading position in custom XRF and online/automated XRF instrumentation.

With R&D and manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Innov-X has offices in Europe (the Netherlands), and Asia (Hong Kong). They maintain sales and service alliances in Canada, the Middle East, Latin America and worldwide. Service, installation and training is available in over 100 countries.
