Elemental Analytical Workflow

End-to-end solutions for your elemental analysis needs

Every part of your XRF analytical process affects the following stage – and ultimately, the quality of your results. Optimizing each step of the process and integrating all of them makes your results consistently reliable and maximizes operational efficiency while lowering your total running costs.

We provide a comprehensive suite of ‘building blocks’ for every aspect of your analytical setup:

  • Instrumentation and accessories
  • Application packages, including sample certification and (certified) reference materials
  • Instrument & automation support
  • Analytical & consultancy services

From sample preparation to result reporting, and whether you’re beginning with your sample, lab configuration, or the results you need, we can help you build up your ideal workflow to achieve your elemental analysis needs.

Why do you need to care about your analytical workflow?

Consistently reliable results
Errors can appear throughout the XRF analytical process. They can be caused by inaccurate sample weighing, low flux quality, improper fusion, reference materials, or an incorrect XRF method. All of these can prevent us from getting consistently accurate and precise results.
High operational efficiency

High operational efficiency is always beneficial – and it is relevant to the whole operational procedure. How fast can you get a sample prepared without any errors? How can you optimize your automation and XRF methods for the best speed? By looking into a holistic analytical workflow, you can achieve the level of efficiency you want.

Lower total running costs
Staff capacity & training, consumable chemicals, energy consumption, and accessories all cost money. By making full use of your analytical workflow, you will be surprised how much costs can be reduced, without compromising on your analytical needs or your team’s happiness.
