Spectrometer Probe scans small sample features.

Press Release Summary:

Featuring 3 mm spot size, oreXpress™ Miniprobe™ allows geologists in field or core shack to pinpoint features of interest on sample for identification. Probe has pushbutton trigger for data collection, 5 W halogen light source for built-in illumination, and metal clad fiber optic cable with quick-disconnect. ABS thermoplastic body features ergonomic, low reflectance, impact-resistant design. Miniprobe is indispensable for samples where minerals of interest are only present in tiny areas.

Focus on Accurate Scans for Small Sample Features with the oreXpress Miniprobe

Lawrence, MA –  The SPECTRAL EVOLUTION oreXpress™ Miniprobe™ has a 3mm spot that allows geologists in the field or the core shack to pinpoint features of interest on a sample for identification. The Miniprobe is designed to work with SPECTRAL EVOLUTION’S oreXpress field spectrometer for portable mineral identification and analysis.

The Miniprobe allows geologists to identify minerals in a smaller area than the traditional 10mm spot available with the mineral contact probe. It’s easy to hold and use with an external trigger for fast and comfortable scanning.

• Unique, eregonomic low reflectance, impact resistant ABS thermoplastic body

• Light touch, tactile feel, pushbutton trigger for data collection

• Metal clad fiber optic cable with quick disconnect for fast set-up

• Lightweight, easy to carry and hold for all day use

• 5W halogen light source for built-in illumination

• Plugs directly into all SPECTRAL EVOLUTION full range spectrometers or spectroradiometers

• Ideal for mineral reflectance studies especially on very small sample features

The Miniprobe is indispensable for samples where minerals of interest are only present in tiny areas. It allows geologist to focus on smaller areas of interest in a sample or core and see accurate, high resolution scans. Combined with the EZ-ID mineral identification software it can help identify important mineral alteration and isolate components in mixtures.
