Every element mapped at high resolution and speed

High speed, high resolution geological core analysis for elemental maps and mineral images

  • Elemission coriosity high speed LIBS core scanner

    Key Features

    • Every element with high sensitivity to light elements including H, Be, Li, B, C, F, O and Na
    • High resolution down to 50 μm
    • High speed at 40 sec/cm2
    • Low operating costs at ambient temperature and pressure
    • No sample preparation accomodating a surface roughness of 6 mm


The ultimate innovation in geological core analysis providing high-speed and high-resolution mineralogy by element mapping.  It is micro analysis with speeds faster than any other analytical method for element or mineral analysis

Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) analyses the whole periodic table including elements that are invisible to ambient X-ray technology such as H, Be, Li, B, C, F, O and Na. The sensitivity is from trace (sub-ppm) to percent concentrations and this ensures accurate mapping so alteration minerals with slight changes in chemisty can be clearly defined for geological studies.

The CORIOSITY requires no sample preparation and will analyse diverse samples with a surface height variation of 6 mm.  Analysis is conducted at room temperature and pressure. No additional gases are required.

At a 50 μm high resolution the full surface is analysed for every element in 40 sec/cm2. A lower resolution analysis offers higher speeds of 10 sec/cm2.

The only benchtop core analyser offering ALL the elements, high speed AND high resolution.
