Home > Press > Santa’s secrets revealed on TV

Abstract:
In a series of programs spotlighting innovative local companies, Dutch regional TV has recently featured Almelo-based analytical X-ray specialists, PANalytical. In one program, students were set a seasonal challenge - to identify which Christmas chocolate had been contaminated with a sleep-inducing drug. The chocolate was successfully analyzed using PANalytical's X'Pert PRO Multi-Purpose Diffractometer (MPD), one of the most technically advanced, versatile and cost-effective X-ray diffraction (XRD) solutions available today.

Peter Munk, marketing manager, PANalytical, commented: "This was a fun experiment, but it's actually a very good illustration of how the power of X-ray analysis can help with real-world problems. Technological developments at PANalytical are taking X-ray analysis out of its roots in research, establishing the technique in process and quality control."

XRD plays an increasing role in a broad range of research and industrial applications. Sample preparation is extremely straightforward, with many materials analyzed in their original state. Importantly, analysis is fast and non-destructive.
