One analyzer, every element
The Z-903 accomplishes what no other portable analyzer has done. It’s a handheld analyzer that measures every element in the periodic table of the elements – from H to U.
It uses the same powerful laser as SciAps other Z-900 models, but with an extended spectrometer range from 190 nm out to 950 nm.
- The extended range allows emission lines from elements H, F, N, O, Br, Cl, Rb, Cs and S to be measured. These lines cannot be measured with the other Z-900 series analyzers.
- There are other benefits to the extended range. For example, it measures a more sensitive line for lithium near 675 nm to achieve limits of detection in the 2-5 ppm range.
- It also measures a more sensitive, and interference-free line for potassium (K). The more traditional potassium lines have heavy iron interference, whereas the line used by the Z-903 is free of such interference.
In use globally
The Z-903 is most widely used for mineral exploration including lithium in both hard rock and brines. It is also used in forensics, authentication, archeology and oil/gas exploration due to the wide elemental range.
Complete user control
The laser strike pattern, cleaning shots, spectrometer settings are all under user control. The analyzer includes advanced software for modifying all settings, comparing spectral data, and for generating quantitative calibration curves. The Z-903 features the same Android OS and intuitive App-driven software as all other SciAps models.

|Z-903||190 – 950 nm||Measures every element in the periodic table. Measures carbon in geochemical samples and total organic carbon (TOC). Not for carbon in steel or stainless alloys.|
|Z-903 Carbon||190 – 625 nm||Same as 902 Carbon, except spectral range is extended to measure Li in alloys.|
