The ELEMISSION ECORE rapid LIBS core scanner has the versatility to cater for a range of different sample types including
Whole drill core
Cut drill core
Combinations of these can be scanned all at once with virtually no sample preparation.
The LIBS laser has an analytical area of 50 µm providing microanalytical data. The system enables you to vary the spacing between each analytical spot as well as the scan pattern depending on your specific requirements. e.g. if you want to run a quick control scan or are looking for region of interest, you can space your analytical spots further apart and then when a region of interest is identified, you can re-scan using more closely spaced spots.
This flexibility is ideal for host rock vs zones of mineralisation or interest.
Integrated High Resolution Camera
The ECORE has an integrated high resolution RGB camera. Images from the camera can be co-located with spectral data enabling correlation of datasets for easy reference.
Data Output – Elemental Maps
One of the primary outputs form the ECORE LIBS core scanner is elemental maps that show relative concentrations of each elements. In addition, quantitative chemical analysis at any point can be provided.
The system is sensitive enough that it can also provide trace element analysis.
Data Output – Quantitative Mineralogy
The proprietary ELEDIT® software provided with the system that enables you to view, interrogate and integrate geological data allowing you to analyse textural relationships of minerals.
