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.
Aerosol samples, soil/sediments and water for heavy elements determination, and the monitoring of solid waste, effluent, cleaning fluids, pools and filters.
Mineral ores and geological samples.
Tissues, body fluids, plants (leaves, roots…)
Quality control of industrial products
Crude oil analyses for elemental composition and pollution monitoring.
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;
Drugs, cosmetics, and body care products and production quality control.
