Bruker TRACER 5 handheld XRF spectrometer is designed for various applications, including art & archaeometry, soil testing, mining, consumer goods, and environmental monitoring. The device allows users to analyze non-destructive elements, making it valuable for on-the-spot decision-making.

The Bruker TRACER 5g XRF is a handheld, portable spectrometer ideal for elemental analysis in the field and laboratory-like settings. Specifically designed for methods development, research, and complex material analysis, the TRACER 5g detects elements from Fluorine to Uranium (with a He atmosphere) and analyzes elements from Sodium to Uranium.

Key Features:

  • Portability: As a handheld device, the TRACER 5 can be used in field operations, facilitating on-the-spot analysis without transporting samples to a laboratory.
  • Range of Detection: Depending on the model and configuration, it typically can detect elements from magnesium (Mg) to uranium (U). This wide detection range makes it suitable for diverse applications.
  • Integrated Touchscreen Interface: Modern versions have an integrated touchscreen, allowing for an intuitive user experience.
  • Customizable & Upgradeable: Bruker’s system allows for the customization of the device based on the user’s specific needs. Calibration standards can be tailored to specific applications, ensuring accurate measurements.
  • Safety: The device adheres to strict safety standards. XRF technology, by nature, uses X-rays, but handheld devices like the TRACER 5 have safety measures to ensure minimal exposure.


  • Art & Archaeometry: By using TRACER 5, researchers and conservators can determine the composition of artifacts, paintings, and other historical objects without causing any damage. This can assist in verifying the authenticity and understanding the historical context.
  • Soil Testing: Environmental scientists and agricultural researchers can use the device to quickly assess the elemental composition of the soil, aiding in decisions related to crop management and environmental conservation.
  • Mining: Geologists and mining professionals can use the TRACER 5 to quickly evaluate ore samples in the field, guiding extraction and processing decisions.
  • Consumer Goods & Environmental Monitoring: With increasing concerns about harmful elements in consumer goods, the TRACER 5 allows rapid testing for elements like lead, arsenic, and others in products and environmental samples.
