Multi Element HD Prime®

Analysis for Lead and Other Toxic Elements in Consumer Products

HD Prime complies with ASTM F2853, F963 and F2617 methods, and delivers exceptional analysis of lead and other toxic elements in toys and children’s products. Powered by HDXRF, HD Prime can measure the concentration of elements in a product’s paint and base material separately. This analytical technique was developed specifically to meet the CPSIA's current and future regulatory limits, is non-destructive to the product, and does not require costly and time-consuming sample preparation – reducing waste and preserving the audit trail. HDXRF technology supports industry and government agencies responsible for ensuring product safety.

HDXRF is an elemental analysis technique which uses XOS’s patented Doubly Curved Crystal (DCC) optics to enhance measurement sensitivity, precision, and accuracy. Multiple optics capture x-rays from a divergent x-ray beam. The optics redirect several select and monochromatic energy beams to focus intensely on the sample. By using focused monochromatic excitation beams in three different energy regions, HDXRF is able to eliminate scattering background and reduce interferences that hinder measurement sensitivity, repeatability, and speed. The diagram at the bottom right shows the basic configuration of HDXRF and the use of optics to create monochromatic excitation.
