TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 6, 2017) - Eurocontrol Technics Group Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EUO)(OTCQB:EUCTF) ("Eurocontrol" or the "Company"), a Canadian public company specializing in the acquisition, development and commercialization of innovative test and measurement technologies for industry with application systems focused on the energy security, semiconductor and precision farming sectors, is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary Xenemetrix Ltd. ("Xenemetrix") recently participated in Isranalytica 2017, the 20th Israeli Annual Exhibition and Conference of the Analytical Chemistry Society held in Tel-Aviv, where it unveiled its new products line catalog of portable, benchtop and a series of new laboratory systems. Special attention was given to the introduction of P-Metrix, a portable ED-XRF battery operated laboratory system that weighs 32 lbs, the best of its kind in the world for field analytics tasks, and Analytix, the new advanced sophisticated analytical software.
Doron Reinis, Chief Operating Officer of Eurocontrol stated, "The P-Metrix portable laboratory system attracted a lot of attention during the Isranalytica show which has converted into several pending sales and tending opportunities. P-Metrix is a unique ruggedized field deployable Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (ED-XRF) elemental analyzer that offers wide elemental coverage with an easy-to-use touch screen software interface. It has been developed for industrial quality control applications, environmental soil contamination, field agricultural soil and water evaluation. P-Metrix can non-destructively analyze from Magnesium (Mg) through Uranium (U) in most any matrix, from solids and alloys to powders, liquids and slurries. The greatest advantage and uniqueness of the P-Metrix for field applications is its ability to automatically self calibrate with its own built-in calibration targets."
The Isranalytica exhibition provides a stage for instrumentation, equipment, chemicals, materials, publications and services of analytical chemistry, diagnostics and biotechnology. Xenemetrix was proud to stage and present its updated products line at this event which included all major local companies, suppliers, service providers and customers and attracted over 3,500 visitors. The large venue provided a perfect atmosphere for networking and sharing new ideas and Xenemetrix was proud to stage and present its updated product line, and in particular its new innovative P-Metrix system that not only offers mobility but also offers the largest testing chamber, auto-calibration of internal samples and the ability for self-maintenance and service, features that are unique to P-Metrix and can be viewed on Eurocontrol's home page at this link - http://www.eurocontrol.ca/index.php.
