Bruker® Q4 TASMAN

Optical Emission Spectrometry (OES)

Bruker® Q4 TASMAN

The innovative Q4 TASMAN is single- or dual-optic concept with 3 variants to  deliver high-performance to cover every analytical need in the most economical way.


Optimal, cost-effective, ultra-fast metal analysis

The analytical range of the Q4 TASMAN Series 2 has been extended for many elements, and new element sets enable the analysis of new alloy types. Addressing the entire metals market, dedicated Analytical Solution Packages (ASPs) are available for all ten common metal bases: Fe, Al, Cu, Ni, Co, Pb, Sn, Zn, Mg, and Ti. These ASPs include full element sets, calibrations, alloy groups, and standardization samples. ASPs provide analytical performance that’s precisely tuned for the metals world – and its future demands.

Iron | Steel

Pouring and processing steel requires accurate  and precise results for a wide variety of alloys. Nitrogen at trace level as well as hydrogen and oxygen content are critical to monitor.



Master the phosphorous and alkali content in aluminum with complete elemental coverage and wide calibration ranges.



Copper is the building block of many alloys. The Q4 TASMAN covers all the elemental analysis needs including oxygen determination in pure copper at trace level.



High performance materials like titanium and its alloys are trusted for demanding applications like aerospace, aviation, defense, chemical, and biomedical which require the strictest quality. The Q4 TASMAN offers full elemental analysis coverage.
