X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) Analysis

X-ray fluorescence is the emission of characteristic "secondary" (or fluorescent) X-rays from a material that has been excited by bombarding with high-energy X-rays or gamma rays.  An XRF instrument measures the intensity and energy of the emitted X-rays to provide qualitative and quantitative analysis of the material being tested.Operator Using Midex for XRF AnalysisHandheld xSort XRF Device

Applications of XRF Instruments

The XRF method is widely used for elemental analysis and chemical analysis, particularly in the investigation of metals, glass, ceramics and building materials, and for research in geochemistry, forensic science, and archaeology.  It is particulary suitable for the analysis of precious metals such as gold and silver due to its non-destructive nature.

‚ÄčAdvantages of XRF Technology+  a relatively quick and easy analysis method+  non-destructive to the sample+  tech is available in convenient handheld devices Disadvantages of XRF?-  harder to detect very light elements such as Beryllium-  X-ray penetration of the sample is limited to .01-.1 mm -  variables such as shape & density can affect readings

Global Scientific offers several different XRF instruments to satisfy various different use cases.  These include the Xepos, Midex, iQII and xSort. 

We also offer a wide range of alternative methods of testing including OES, FTIR, NMR, RAMAN, and VCD.
