Although first shown at Pittcon in 2006, the $2 PicoFox from Bruker AXS has been updated. The system is a novel total reflection XRF (TXRF) instrument that, unlike typical TXRF systems, is designed less for coating analysis than for elemental analysis to potentially compete with technologies like atomic absorption and inductively coupled plasma spectroscopy. The system is priced at about $100,000.
