X-ray fluorescence chemical analysis for major and trace elements

Core Description

Essentially all elements from fluorine to uranium can be analyzed, in concentrations generally from parts per million to 100%. A wide variety of materials can be analyzed, including rocks and minerals, catalysts, dust samples, rare-earth ores, metals, solid objects such as coins and ceramic tiles, and in some cases liquids.


Service available to All entities, including for-profit organizations.

Priority service for No distinctions.
