Bruker AXS.

The compact SMART X2S from Bruker AXS is a benchtop single-crystal X-ray diffraction instrument designed for use by chemists, rather than expert crystallographers. First announced at the ACS Fall Meeting in 2007, the system sells at a price of about $180,000.

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.
