Portable Precious Metal Analysis: Niton XL2 XRF Precious Metal Analyzer

Considering the steep price and volatility of gold, the failure to detect even a slight difference can prove to be a costly mistake.

The Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ XL2 XRF Precious Metal Analyzer offers a rapid, accurate, and most significantly, non-destructive approach to test the chemistry and purity of all precious metals.

The Niton XL2 XRF Precious Metal Analyzer rapidly detects counterfeit gold and gold plating and provides users with the precise elemental composition of coins and jewelry, so users can be truly certain of the value of the precious metals they buy and sell.

Get precise analysis within seconds in the Niton XL2 analyzer’s rugged, reliable and user-friendly package. The content of all gold and precious metals can be measured without having to manually alter the calibration based on the metal being analyzed — for example, silver (Ag), gold (Au), palladium (Pd) and platinum (Pt). You can get:

  • More in-depth and faster analysis than fire assay with similar accuracy
  • Faster, easier and more accurate analysis than nitric acid test techniques
  • Thermo Scientific AuDIT™ gold-plating detection technology for efficient detection of a majority of gold-plated items
  • Knowledge of both the presence and concentration of harmful heavy elements and other trace alloying elements (which could affect valuation and refining requirements)


  • Ergonomic design
  • Point and shoot simplicity — can be used very easily, even by non-technical operators
  • Non-destructive analysis with almost immediate results
  • Perfect for retail environments
  • Standard analytical range: >25 elements from S to U elements (based on the application)
