XL3 on The One Show
Viewed 80 times
Did you spot our Niton XL3 XRF Analyser on BBC's The One Show last night?
The XL3's cutting edge technology was used by Alice Tate-Harte from English Heritage to identify which elements were present in a 500 year old painting, to confirm if it was indeed by Titian himself. The painting was given to The Duke of Wellington and is now a part of the Wellington Collection that currently resides in Apsley House, London.
For hundreds of years, people have been arguing about this priceless piece of art - is it by Titian - one of the masters of Renaissance paintings - or is it a copy?

The Niton XL3 handheld x-ray fluorescence analyser combines purpose-built, proprietary electronics with an ergonomic design and easy-to-use software, transforming XRF analysis. It does this through reduced measurement times, increased precision, and lower detection limits than could not previously be achieved with portable x-ray fluorescence instruments. http://www.nitonuk.co.uk/xl3
