Easy sample preparation for accurate XRF analysis
Just as for any other analytical technique, good sample preparation is essential for performing high-quality chemical analysis using X-ray fluorescence (XRF). Whichever samples are being assessed – loose or pressed powders, fused beads, solid samples or liquids – finding the right approach to sample preparation is the first, and one of the most important, steps in achieving accurate and reproducible results.
Unlike other analytical techniques, XRF analysis does not require extensive sample preparation work, and the required methods are normally inexpensive, straightforward and easy to learn. Even taking the need for sample preparation into account, XRF spectrometry is still easier and quicker than most other chemical analysis techniques.
