The Rigaku Miniflex II can be used for a variety of applications from diffraction pattern comparison of polycrystalline materials such as powder samples and metal plates to qualitative and quantitative analyses and quality management of raw materials and products. This Miniflex system also offers use of a real-time angle correction system, a single sample holder, an automated six sample changer (used in standard operation), as well as a monochromator addition that captures X-rays other than Cu Kα for use in analysis.
