This 3 day training course is held at the training facility at our UK headquarters in Malvern, Worcestershire.

The sessions are held in a friendly, informal atmosphere and designed to enable you to produce high quality XRF data from your Malvern Panalytical instrument. This course should appeal to both new users and also those wishing to update their knowledge and professional competencies.

This course is tailored for users of specific instruments in our XRF range: the SuperQ 5 course would benefit users of our Axios, Magix and PW2404 instruments.

These are paid courses.
GBP 1,950 (Excl. VAT) per person
