Company Profile

SPECTRO is one of the world’s leading suppliers of analytical instruments for optical emission and X-ray fluorescence spectrometry. As a unit of the AMETEK Materials Analysis Division, SPECTRO manufactures advanced instruments, develops the best solutions for strongly varying applications and provides exemplary customer service. SPECTRO’s products are exemplified by unique technical capabilities that deliver measureable benefits to the customer. From its foundation in 1979 until today, more than 30,000 analytical instruments have been delivered to customers around the world.


Process Control During the Manufacture of Cosmetics Using ED-XRF

Having the right analytical tools directly at-line or in the internal QC lab helps to reduce the number of samples sent to an external lab and with this allows for faster reaction times.

Screening and Quantification for Heavy Metals in Cosmetics Using ED-XRF

Newer generations of energy-dispersive (ED) XRF instruments like the SPECTRO XEPOS can achieve detection limits for heavy metals, previously only possible with more expensive other laboratory instrumentation. Thus, it can be used to determine the content of additives as well as active ingredients quickly and accurately.

Four reasons to upgrade ICP-OES technology

Users may find that four reasons in particular make upgrading to these next-generation instruments an intelligent choice.



The new SPECTRO XEPOS spectrometer represents a quantum leap in energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence technology. It provides breakthrough advances in multi-elemental analysis of major, minor, and trace element concentrations. New developments in excitation and detection deliver outstanding sensitivity and detection limits — yielding remarkable gains in precision and accuracy.


The new SPECTROSCOUT for laboratory and at-line testing is a durable, compact XRF analyzer that delivers reliable and highly precise results – with the power of a top-grade laboratory benchtop instrument but in a transportable design. Employing the SPECTROSCOUT for at-line analysis dramatically enhances QC productivity by eliminating the time wasted transporting samples from the plant floor to the laboratory to wait in queue for testing.


The SPECTRO ARCOS ICP-OES excels in industrial and academic applications for the most advanced elemental analysis of metals, chemicals, petrochemicals, and other materials. The periscope-free MultiView mechanism lets an operator literally "turn" a radial-view instrument into an axial-view device, or vice-versa, in 90 seconds or less.
