EDAX Launches Latest Revision of APEX™ Software Used with Element and Octane Elect Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) Systems

MAHWAH, NJ – EDAX, Inc., a leader in X-ray microanalysis and electron diffraction instrumentation, has introduced the latest revision of its APEX™ Analysis Software, which now is available not only for the Element, but also for the Octane Elect Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) Systems.

APEX™ was developed to ensure high-quality results that, combined with its ease of use, accelerates and simplifies compositional analysis, delivering high-quality data processing along with accurate and reliable results. The APEX™ interface is very user friendly and can be customized for a specific workflow, offering a wide choice of layouts, colors and data report formats.

The latest release of the software now includes the following features:
Advanced Reporting, including the ability to generate reports directly from APEX™ Live mode and a report designer, which provides flexible and customizable templates for the presentation of images, spectra, quantification results, text, logos, and sample information.
Drift Correction with parameters set automatically for easy operation along with options to save drift images and define manual reference areas for advanced correction needs.
Dynamic Element Mapping, including the addition and removal of elements in Mapping and Linescan modes to show only elements of interest.
CompoMaps live net mapping capability for the separation of elemental contributions from overlapping peaks to individual elemental maps for more accurate representations of EDS maps.
Spectrum Match now is available for APEX™ together with a newly launched Smart Materials and Minerals Library option, which enables the matching of a collected ‘unknown’ spectrum to a library of reference spectra.

This new release of APEX™ for EDAX EDS Systems provides users with continued ease of use, flexibility and customization, while giving them all the tools they need to increase efficiency and produce fast and accurate results from their analysis.
