J200 CX LIBS Instrument

The J200 CX Instrument is a next-generation direct solid sampling elemental and isotopic analyzer, powered by LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy). The compact design (footprint of 12″X12″X18″ and weight <50lbs) was engineered for transportability within the laboratory or in the field. Features include large-area elemental mapping with high spatial resolution, high sensitivity and precision, and a controlled chamber environment for accurate bulk, particle or heterogeneous sample analysis. The low cost J200 CX delivers outstanding LIBS analytical performance anywhere you want to analyze your samples.

Highlights of the J200 CX Instrument:


  • Compact footprint and light-weight design
  • Simple and easy to use
  • Efficient, high energy, high repetition-rate DPSS laser
  • 3D stages for scanning and chemical mapping of large areas
  • Micron-resolution optical imaging of sample features
  • Broadband spectrometer for complete elemental coverage

Flexible sample chambers

  • Multi-pocket chamber for forensic collection devices, and small samples
  • Flat chamber for large swipes and thin electrode sheets
  • Push-to-fit mechanism – easy sample loading

Next generation data analysis software – ClarityNeXt™

  • Pre-analysis data visualization
  • Built-in calibration procedures – univariate and multivariate
  • Advanced 2D/3D elemental mapping options for best insight and presentation
  • Automation Wizard & Player – module for automating quantitative and elemental mapping analysis for repeated measurements


  • Optional cart with integrated touch screen control panel
  • AC and/or battery operable
  • Tandem Ready – Sequential or simultaneous LIBS with LA-ICP-MS

Axiom 2.0 and ClarityNeXt™ for system operation and data analysis

The J200 CX utilizes Axiom 2.0, Applied Spectra’s well-established, flexible operating system that controls our flagship J200 Series LIBS and LA instruments. The Axiom 2.0 GUI provides clear visual images of sample analysis areas and sampling patterns. With Axiom 2.0, the analyst can control the laser, LIBS detector, and 3D stage settings to create sampling methods appropriate for qualitative screening, quantitative analysis, and chemical mapping.

The J200 CX Instrument users will have ClarityNeXt™, Applied Spectra’s next generation software, for powerful LIBS and LA-ICP-MS data analysis. ClarityNeXt™ allows the analysts to perform a quick and efficient pre-analysis data visualization, preview of elemental mapping and comparison of data collected from different sample locations or under different measurement conditions.
