Dynasil Corporation of America (NASDAQ: DYSL), a leader in the development and manufacture of detection, sensing and analysis technology, today announced the launch of the LPXpro Lead Paint Analyzer, the fastest product on the market for the measurement of lead paint on a variety of surfaces.
The handheld LPXpro will be available to private inspection services and government agencies in the United States and France, the two countries where the use of lead paint is regulated.
The LPXpro, which can deliver readings in an industry-best two seconds, combines K-Shell X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) technology with a controlled-depth of interrogation feature to maximize reading accuracy. The product features an easy-to-use Android-based touch screen interface, an ergonomic design and a small sensing footprint which enables users to take readings in hard-to-reach areas. The LPXpro has been designed to meet all HUD and EPA requirements, and is backed by 25 years of experience in XRF instrumentation.
"We are expecting an enthusiastic customer response to Dynasil's new state-of-the-art LPXpro, the fastest lead paint analyzer on the market," said Steve Ruggieri, President and Chief Executive Officer. "During a recent national sales meeting, the LPXpro received an enthusiastic response from our 15 Manufacturer's Representatives, who were impressed by the product's zero warm-up time, light weight and other features that save users valuable time."
According to federal statistics, approximately 64 million, or 75% of the nation's housing stock built before 1978 contains some lead-based paint. Approximately 250,000 U.S. children ages 1-5 years have elevated blood lead concentrations.
The LPXpro is being launched by Dynasil Products, a newly renamed business unit of the company's Products and Technology Segment. Dynasil Products manufactures precision instruments and is focused on expanding its product line and accelerating the pace of commercialization for the company's technology through organic programs, acquisitions and cross-licensing opportunities. Developed using a rigorous and disciplined Product Realization Process, the LPXpro is the first product launched as part of a long-term strategic roadmap of new product introductions Dynasil Products plans over the next several years.
