Share XRF Results Across the Globe with the Vanta™ Data Viewer

We recently sat down with Olympus’ Associate Product Manager Lauren Dos Santos to learn more about the Vanta Data Viewer, a free app for Vanta handheld XRF analyzers in the Olympus Scientific Cloud™ (OSC) that expands your data management capabilities.

In this interview, she answers some commonly asked questions about the Vanta Data Viewer and explains how it can help customers view data from their XRF analyzers anywhere in the world.

Q: What does the Vanta Data Viewer do?

A: The Vanta Data Viewer app is a powerful tool that simplifies data collection and sharing. The app enables OSC users to remotely view real-time data and test results from their Vanta analyzer—or multiple Vanta instruments—located anywhere around the world. This means you can share Vanta XRF analysis results instantly around the globe.

For example, a mining exploration customer in Australia may want to share XRF results in real time with colleagues located at their headquarters in London. With the app, they can share results immediately.

Q: What information can I share with the app?

A: Test results, including the spectra, chemistry, instrument location, and field. For easy sorting, you can filter results by date and serial number.
