Oxford Instruments PLC has added two new models, the X-MET8000 Optimum and X-MET8000 Smart, to its X-MET8000 series of handheld XRF analyzers for metals analysis. Along with the X-MET8000 Expert (available since September 2014), the new models X-MET8000 Optimum and X-MET8000 Smart enable reliable, uninterrupted metals analysis, all-day long, in the harshest environments.
