This XRF course (5 days) is targeted towards starters and new Malvern Panalytical XRF users. It also forms a refresher for users with a few years of experience in XRF. Practical sessions form an important part of this XRF course.

Fundamental and practical aspects of SuperQ for sequential XRF systems are treated. Emphasis is placed on the daily use of SuperQ and the Omnian standardless software. Practical aspects of parameter selection, matrix effects, sample preparation, quantitative analysis, standardless analysis, calibration and calibration update, monitor correction and results analysis are dealt with extensively. The course is composed of lectures and hands-on sessions using the Zetium spectrometers available in our Application Competence Center, Almelo, The Netherlands. Courses on other WD spectrometers courses can be organized on-site. Please contact your local Malvern Panalytical representative.

This course is intended for participants who have a basic knowledge of XRF and want to concentrate on the practical use of Malvern Panalytical’s XRF spectrometers and getting familiar with the SuperQ software.
Greatest benefits can be derived from the course after the instrument has been installed at the user site and the participant has had an opportunity to become acquainted with the XRF spectrometer and software. It is therefore recommended that the course should be attended after installation rather than before.
A good working knowledge of the English language is required. Basic knowledge of the operation of MS Windows® based software packages is required.

The following aspects will be covered during the course:
• Introduction SuperQ and IQ+ software
• Matrix effects
• Qualitative +amp;amp; Quantitative analysis
• Sample preparation
• Standardless analysis
• Sources of error
• Drift correction

Total number of participants
Minimum number of participants: 3

Each participant of this XRF training course receives a Tutorware usb-stick free of charge. Tutorware is training in the form of a software program, which guides the user through the principles of the XRF technology. Graphics, animations and simulations make it interesting and easy to follow. The course consists of a number of modules, which cover all aspects from introduction to X-rays to the basic operating principles of X-ray analysis, whereby each module can be started-up independently. An ideal help to learn, refresh and stay up-to-date.

At the Almelo application facilities courses are given in English. Courses in German (and French) can be arranged upon request. In case you prefer the assistance of an interpreter please contact your local Malvern Panalytical representative. We will do our utmost to find a satisfactory solution. The course material is in English.
