   X-Ray Laboratory

Energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence technology (ED-XRF) provides one of the simplest, most accurate and most economic analytical methods for the determination of the chemical composition of many types of materials. It is non-destructive and reliable, requires no, or very little, sample preparation and is suitable for solid, liquid and powdered samples. It can be used for a wide range of elements, from sodium (11) to uranium (92), and provides detection limits at the sub-ppm level; it can also measure concentrations of up to 100% easily and simultaneously.

  • Environmental Control:                        
    Aerosol samples, soil/sediments and water for heavy elements determination, and the monitoring of solid waste, effluent, cleaning fluids, pools and filters.

  • Solid Minerals:                                   
    Mineral ores and geological samples.

  • Biological Samples:                                           
    Tissues, body fluids, plants (leaves, roots…)

  • Industry:                                             
    Quality control of industrial products

  • Oil Industry:                                        
    Crude oil analyses for elemental composition and  pollution monitoring.

  • Agriculture:                                         
    Fertilizer, sand/soil

  • Engineering Materials:                         
    slags, cements, heat-resistant materials, glass, ceramics, wafers; the determination of coatings on paper, film, polyester and metals; the sorting of metal alloys, glass and plastic according to their constituent materials;

  • Pharmaceutical Products:                    
    drugs, cosmetics and body care products and production quality control.
