In the world of pawnbroking, the difference between real and fake gold—or plated versus solid—could mean a difference of hundreds of dollars per transaction and thousands per year.

As pawnbrokers look for highly-accurate, safe and fast methods to determine the value and authenticity of pawn items, Thermo Scientific portable precious metal analyzers have received the endorsement of prominent television personality Seth Gold, who, with his family, manages the internationally-known store American Jewelry and Loan. Seth was recently named the 2013 National Pawnbrokers Association’s “Pawnbroker of the Year.”
The relationship between Thermo Fisher Scientific and American Jewelry and Loan enables Seth to promote the Thermo Scientific Niton DXL precious metal analyzer and Thermo Scientific Niton XL2 series XRF analyzer for use in determining the elemental composition of metals with precision.
“Verifying the elemental composition of precious metals that come into my store is one of my greatest challenges – and I believe all pawnbrokers should consider XRF for metals identification,” said Seth, a fourth generation pawnbroker who has demonstrated a tireless commitment to supporting the pawn industry. “The Niton DXL and Niton XL2 enable our team to quickly and easily evaluate all silver, gold and platinum items.”
“We specifically designed the Niton DXL to meet the elemental analysis needs of the jewelry resale and pawn market,” said Jon Culbertson, director of business development, portable analytical instruments, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “We also believe that all pawnbrokers should consider XRF use for metals analysis, since it limits the chance of misidentification.”
The Thermo Scientific Niton DXL and Niton XL2 analyzers identify elements using X-ray fluorescence (XRF), an analytical technique that measures the emission of secondary X-rays from a material/sample that has been illuminated with X-rays. Thermo Fisher, a leader in handheld X-ray fluorescence technology, engineered these instruments to:
- provide non-destructive, definitive and safe verification of the elemental composition of precious metals in seconds;
- offer intuitive touch-screen operation making analysis easily accessible to non-technical users;

Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, discussed how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galera M...
