EDX-7000/8000 Receives 2014 IBO Industrial Design Gold Award for Analytical Instrument Industrial Design
The EDX-7000/8000 energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometers won the 2014 IBO Gold Award for Analytical Instrument Industrial Design.
The Award is promoted by Instrument Business Outlook, the newsletter issued by Strategic Directions International, Inc. (SDi, USA), which implements market surveys on analytical and life science-related instruments. Awards are given to superior products from among the industrial products released during that year, considered from the perspectives of cutting-edge design, functionality, and user experience.
The EDX-7000 and EDX-8000 energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometers, released in September 2013, present a different exterior to the square, heavy formats of other similar instruments. Their round, streamlined exterior makes them user-friendly in a wide variety of circumstances. In addition, the coloring and compact sizes made them extremely popular with the judges.
Instrument Business Outlook said the following about the EDX-7000 and EDX-8000: “The system's round front and streamlined profile set it apart from the boxier and heavier-looking designs of other benchtop ED-XRF systems, making the system approachable and distinctive."
