About Us

Celebrating 50 years of Innovation in the XRF Spectroscopy Industry

Chemplex® is the leading global provider and manufacturer of innovative Sample Preparation Products. In 1971, Dr. Monte Solazzi started Chemplex in Tuckahoe, NY with the dream of providing laboratories with a better solution for Sample Preparation. The 1430 XRF Sample Cup was the first in our product line and we are still manufacturing it today. Dr. Solazzi made the decision in 1994 to move our manufacturing facility from New York to Florida. In 2011, Michael Solazzi became President of Chemplex® to continue pursuing his father’s dream and move Chemplex® into the future.

We now offer over 40 different sizes and styles of Sample Cups along with Thin-Film Sample Supports which are all manufactured on-site. This includes our exclusive SpectroMembrane® Thin-Film carrier frames available with a variety of Thin-Film material such as Etnom®, Prolene®, Mylar® and more, in a range of thicknesses. Our line of Calibration and Check Standards will enable you to routinely maintain consistent results.

Chemplex® offers a line of Sample Grinders for you to easily reduce your particle sizes down to the sub-micron level. Our table top SpectroPress® Pellet Press line is available in different forces to accommodate any laboratory’s needs. Automated Fluxers are available in Gas or Electric to consistently prepare fused beads for XRF and solutions for ICP, AA analysis. High quality platinum ware is available for any Fluxer including our PREP program to replace unusable platinum ware with new ones at a fraction of the cost.

The majority of Chemplex® products are manufactured in-house at our facility in Palm City, Florida, USA with high quality raw materials to ensure superior products.
