Oxford Instruments (UK) announces the launch of a robust X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) analyser the X MET5000, for highly accurate and reliable elemental analysis. The X MET5000 represents the 4th generation of Oxford Instruments` world-renowned XRF hand-held analysers.

Oxford Instruments X-MET5000 XRF Handheld Analyzer XMET 5000 Calibrated. In good working and cosmetic condition. Tested and works. See pictures. Calibrated and serviced by Oxford Instruments October 2015. Comes loaded with the latest software, new battery, new charger and everything pictured. Loaded with Rohs, alloy mode. Can test for Precious Metals also and a lot of metals.

The X-MET5000 major strength is the Light Element Treatment (LET) mode, enabling fast and accurate analysis of heavy elements, even when the sample contains light elements like Aluminum and Silicon. This is not possible when using Fundamental Parameters (FP) on an analyzer that does not detect the light elements.

X-MET hand-held XRF analysers are specifically designed for:

  • positive material identification (PMI)
  • metal identification/scrap sorting
  • analysis of alloys and hazardous material analysis (RoHS screening)
  • analysis of heavy metals in soils on polluted lands and ores at mining sites
  • screening for lead in toys
  • detection of lead in paint


  • Closed beam operation for increased radiation safety
  • Improved measurement precision
  • Simplified sample positioning
  • Simplified and more comfortable operation when measuring many samples

The X-MET5000 combines Oxford Instruments' ground breaking Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) with our own purpose built powerful 45kV X-ray tube. This cutting edge technology delivers a five times faster measurement speed,  improved detection limits and significant accuracy improvement over conventional systems.

At the pull of a trigger, the X-MET5000 and X-MET5100 X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysers provide fast, highly accurate, on-the-spot sample screening and analysis. The need for expensive laboratory testing is minimal. X-MET enables GPS integration for real-time correlation of measurement data and location coordinates.

  • Accurate and reliable identification of heavy element pollutants
  • Define the extremities of ‘hotspots’ in seconds
  • Easy data transfer to PC assures maximum efficiency and minimum errors when working on-site
  • Pre-sort contaminated soil to minimize remediation costs
  • Soil remediation decisions made instantly
  • Fast and reliable Go/No-Go decisions,and fully configurable Pass/Fail alarms

Rugged and reliable tool for fast analysis

  • Withstands all weather conditions and rough treatment
  • IP54 (NEMA 3) approved. Superior dust and moisture protection
  • High-strength environmentally sealed housing
  • Long battery operating time, charge indicator on battery and user interface

High performance

  • Fast, single-shot heavy element analysis: Pb, As, Cr, Cu, Zn, Ni, Cd, Co, Se, Mo, Hg, Sb, Ag, Ba etc.
  • Al, Si, P, S analysis of prepared samples. No need for vacuum or He attachments! (X-MET5100)
  • Fast measurement time: 30 – 120 seconds, (X-MET5000) or 5 – 30 seconds, (X-MET5100), depending on the elements of interest and required precision
  • Low detection limits, X-MET5000 can typically detect 5 – 30 ppm concentration with a 120s measurement time. X-MET5100 detection limits are even lower and ppm level analysis can be achieved in just 10 – 30 seconds
