MiniFlex specifications

With total dimensions slightly larger than a personal computer, the MiniFlex is a benchtop diffractometer which incorporates technology usually reserved for much larger, much more expensive systems. Its compact size and exceptional price-to-performance ratio enable MiniFlex users to incorporate XRD analysis into scientific programs — in the laboratory or out in the field — where it has previously been considered infeasible due to budgetary or physical location constraints.
