Eastern Applied Research Inc. and Hitachi High-Tech Analytical Science America Inc. have finalized an agreement for Eastern Applied to continue distribution of Hitachi X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers. The company has been a primary distributor of the Hitachi instruments for the last three years, but at the end of 2017, Hitachi acquired the Industrial Analysis division of Oxford Instruments (which also produces XRF devices), and Eastern Applied’s distribution role has since been in discussion.

In addition to coating thickness measurement systems, and the EA-Series for elemental analysis, Eastern Applied says it will now be a regional distributor of Hitachi “bulk” XRF. These bulk analyzers were staples in the Oxford Instruments line and include the X-Supreme 8000 and new LabX-5000.
