Guided workflows
Everybody can operate ELEMENTAL.SUITE

Designed for maximum usability, ELEMENTAL.SUITE introduces workflows that guide users through complex tasks like standardization, type standardization, etc. without restricting their possibilities in routine operation.

ELEMENTAL.SUITE is based on Bruker's powerful ALASKA framework for future-proof instrument control. All Bruker OES systems are operated by ELEMENTAL.SUITE, covering the entire range of applications. Its plug-in based architecture provides maximum flexibility for your analytical requirements now and in the future.  

Features include:

  • Touchscreen or desktop operation with variable font size
  • Multi-language capabilities
  • Easy to use screens with customizable skins and layouts
  • Routine operation with automatic method finding (AMF)
  • Positive material identification (PMI) or sorting with pass/fail mode
  • Professional Reporting System for customized analysis reports
  • Integrated, powerful Analysis Viewer with data mining and reporting functionalities
  • Advanced Feature like: Regression Plug-in, Single Spark viewer, QC relevant history chart for control samples and standardization
  • Data Interface: Easy configurable universal export to remote SQL-databases, CSV, txt, LIMS
  • Grade Libraries: Full integration of Total Materia (optional) with export to internal grade library to cutomize your own alloy grades.
  • The MCI (Metal Cleanliness Inspection) option, enables investigations on steel cleanliness, oxygen level, inclusions size, distribution and composition. In combination with the standard bulk analysis, the MCI option is a fast way of getting this information within seconds.

Advanced application examples


MCI Report

Inclusion Analysis / Steel Cleanliness Determination

Different inclusions in steel with different chemistry and stoichiometry can be formed during the steel making process. Depending on their size, distribution and abundance they can seriously degrade mechanical properties. In combination with a spectrometer with single spark evaluation capabilities, OES can determine these properties plus an accurate total oxygen value providing a fast and cost effective addition to normal bulk analysis.



The user-friendly regression plug-in makes calibration easy and provides all important features for experts. Structured menu and comprehensive functions make the calibration process easier than ever before. Calibration curve sectioning, calculation of additive and multiplicative corrections, selection and de-selection of alloy groups support tailoring your calibration to your needs.

Single Spark Evaluation

The single-spark viewer plug-in allows investigations of single spark distributions for every channel during analysis with single spark capable instruments. Information on the raw signals and statistical interpretation gives additional information on your sample. Inhomogeneous samples can be studied in detail. Single spark data also provide valuable information on insoluble element fractions.

Automation Ready

The AXSCOM™ automation interface has been extended for OES-specific commands, workflows and responses. It is part of ELEMENTAL.SUITE and enables easy integration of the Q8 MAGELLAN into automated industrial processes.
