Extract

Qualitative inorganic analysis is required for the identification of unknowns, the classification of type, and sometimes to decide what subsequent quantitative analysis is needed. The traditional way of performing qualitative XRF analysis on unknown materials is by subjecting the sample to a full spectral scan. This takes time and an experienced operator to interpret the spectra. Classifying the elements detected as major, minor or trace can also be person dependent. Round robin tests have confirmed this by showing considerable variation in results between laboratories.
