The ability to perform an in situ analysis is often an important requirement for using LIBS as a tool in real applications.
The principles of LIBS allow the use of this technique outside of the laboratory.
AtomTrace has designed and engineered a Mobile LIBS Laboratory - a computer-controlled, modular device equipped with laboratory-grade instrumentation capable of performing LIBS analysis in-situ from a distance of over 20 m.
This enables remote analysis of hard-to-reach objects or dangerous environments, the only requirement is a direct view of the sample. The device consists of a few modules that can be reconfigured as required and also dismantled for easy transport.
