Technology Forum
X-ray Fluorescence
X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry instrumentation has undergone significant evolution in the past couple decades. Participants in this Technology Forum include Alexander Seyfarth of Bruker AXS, Sergey Mamedov of Horiba Jobin Yvon, Michael W. Hinds of the Royal Canadian Mint, and Didier Bonvin and Pascal Lemberge of Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Low cost elemental analysis by EDXRF spectroscopy just got better with the introduction of the new ultra-compact Rigaku NEX QC benchtop analyzer. This analytical tool delivers rapid quantitative determination of sodium (11Na) to uranium (92U) in solids, liquids and powders. Specifically designed for routine quality control applications, it features an intuitive "icon-driven" touch screen interface for easy operation and a built-in printer for convenience. Read More
