Q4 POLO, basic unit



Compact multi-chip Spark Spectrometer


The Little Giant in Spark-OES

Complete Elemental Coverage, Wide Calibration Ranges


Autofocus Included

Bruker's patented concept for self-focusing under temperature variations eliminates thermal drifts. The new ArgonShield™ prevents contamination of the optical window during measurements.


130 - 785 nm

Wavelength coverage for comprehensive access to all relevant elements

The innovative MultiVision™ optics is equipped with a electromagnetic light junction to use the full elemental range with best performance and compactness.


Intuitive Productivity


The insulated SafetyTip on the new sample clamp prevents incorrect sample positioning, and ensures safe operation for a wide variety of samples. Combined with ELEMENTAL.SUITE, our next generation OES-software, this leads to functionality with ease-of-use.


Numerous innovations have been introduced in the Q4 POLO to create a spark spectrometer that is second to none. In addition to superior analytical performance for a full range of elements, the Q4 POLO enables applications previously not addressable by such compact instruments:

  • Outstanding precision, particularly on light elements
  • Excellent results in the challenging analysis of cast iron
  • Reliable analysis of nitrogen at low ppm levels in low alloyed steels
  • Analysis of oxygen in copper


Just as impressive as the results achieved by the Q4 POLO is its incredible long-term stability. The absence of thermal- and contamination-based drifts reduces the need for cleaning and recalibrations, leading to stable results around the clock.

The new Q4 POLO is the ready-to-analyze solution from day one, covering all relevant elements and wide concentration ranges. Each base metal package includes all dedicated alloy groups, calibrations, and standardization samples. At the same time, the Q4 POLO provides high uptime, low maintenance, and hassle-free operation.
