Rigaku is showcasing its newest XRD and XRF instrumentation at the 2018 ArabLab conference in Dubai.

Rigaku MiniFlex XRD

6th Generation Rigaku MiniFlex Benchtop X-ray diffraction system

Rigaku Corporation is presenting its diverse lines of X-ray analytical instrumentation at the 2018 Arablab exposition. Arablab is a trade show for the analytical instruments industry that reaches buyers from the growth markets such as the Middle East & Africa and the Indian Sub-Continent, as well as China & Asia. The conference takes place Sunday, 18 March through Wednesday, 21 March, 2018 at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre in Dubai, UAE.

Rigaku provides the world’s most complete line of X-ray analytical instruments and components, including benchtop X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray fluorescence (XRF) systems, X-ray optics and detectors and is presenting its latest X-ray analytical instrumentation at stand 965 in Hall S1.

Analytical and industrial instrumentation from Rigaku range from benchtop devices, suited for researchers employing X-ray techniques, to high-end instruments with advanced analytical capabilities. Among the instruments featured is the new sixth generation Rigaku MiniFlex benchtop X-ray diffraction instrument. The MiniFlex is a general purpose X-ray diffractometer that can perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of polycrystalline materials. It is designed to deliver speed and sensitivity through innovative technology enhancements such as the HyPix-400 MF 2D hybrid pixel array detector (HPAD) coupled with a 600 W X-ray source and new 8-position automatic sample changer.

Also new from Rigaku is the Rigaku SmartLab SE system, a highly versatile multipurpose X-ray diffractometer with built-in intelligent guidance. The SmartLab SE system offers continued refinement of the ease-of-use features that enabled the original SmartLab diffractometer to receive the coveted R&D 100 Award, including automatic alignment, component recognition, cross beam optics and a 2D detector.

The latest addition to the Rigaku ZSX Primus series of wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometers is the ZSX Primus IV high-performance WDXRF spectrometer. Due to the instrument’s tube-above optics, powder sample spills do not adversely affect the optical system. Since no protective film is required, intensity reduction due to film is avoided. The ZSX Primus IV system also includes a dedicated analyzing crystal, resulting in a 30% improvement in light element performance over conventional configurations and "ZSX Guidance" software and error prevention functionality.

The Rigaku Supermini200 analyzer is also among the analytical instrumentation being presented. It is the world's only high-power (200 W) benchtop sequential wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer for elemental analysis of oxygen (O) through uranium (U) of almost any material. It uniquely delivers low cost-of-ownership with high resolution and lower limits of detection (LLD).

Optimized for sulfur analysis, the Rigaku Micro-Z ULS WDXRF analyzer is a benchtop spectrometer, compliant with ASTM D-2622. The atmosphere in the optics path of the Micro-Z ULS spectrometer is a vacuum, so helium gas is not required. The Micro-Z ULS sulfur analyzer is specifically designed for ultra-low level sulfur analysis of diesel and petrol (gasoline) fuels.
