inXitu's Portable XRD/XRF Instrument Wins Gold Innovation Award at Pittcon

A recently launched field portable XRF/XRD instrument developed by inXitu Inc. has been awarded the Editors' Choice GRAND GOLD Prize as the most outstanding new product at the 2009 PITTCON conference and technical exhibition (March, Chicago, IL).

TERRA – Rock and Mineral Analyzer.

The PITTCON Editors' Choice Awards are intended to recognize the best examples of innovative and creative instruments showcased at the exposition and are selected by an independent voting survey of registered press members attending the conference and trade-show. PITTCON is a flagship annual event in the analytical equipment industry, typically attracting over 25,000 attendees and over 1,000 companies, many of whom time their new product releases for this exhibition.

TERRA is the world's first combined X-ray fluorescence, X-ray diffraction instrument designed for field applications. Completely contained, TERRA allows for remote operation in environment where the advantages of X-Ray diffraction were not formally possible.

Patented technology makes possible the collection of high quality XRD data regardless of the grain size of a sample, providing identification and analysis solutions in applications such as: soils, mining, explosives, forensics, pharmaceuticals, art and archaeological materials.

Bradley Boyer, CEO of inXitu states, "We are thrilled to be honored by the press members attending Pittcon. I've been attending Pittcon since 1985 and can surely attest to the significance of this award. To be placed in the same category as many of our industry's most innovative products is truly an important moment for us and the ever expanding field of portable analytical instruments."

inXitu manufacturers TERRA exclusively for distribution by Innov-X Systems Inc., a world leader in the design, development and distribution of field portable analytical instruments.
