Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence

EDXRF (energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence) is a non-destructive analytical technique that provides quick qualitative and quantitative elemental analysis of a wide range of matrices, from low ppm to high weight percent concentrations. It is a common type of X-ray fluorescence (XRF) because it offers a fast, reliable, and economical solution for determining elemental composition. EDXRF addresses many analytical needs — from testing and screening oils and liquids to analyzing solids, metals, polymers, powders, pastes, coatings, and thin films — while still suiting budgets and occupying only a small amount of space in the lab or testing facility.

EDXRF instruments are easy to use and inexpensive compared to other technologies. Sample preparation is minimal, and since EDXRF is a non-destructive technique, samples are preserved and not destroyed. It is an excellent option for many industries and applications.

  • EDXRF is a non-destructive analytical technique that provides quick, multi-element analysis in a wide range of matrices.
  • EDXRF can measure sodium through uranium, depending on the application.
  • EDXRF systems are easy to use, require little to no sample prep, and offer a low cost of ownership.
  • EDXRF applications range from industrial and in-plant quality assurance to research and development and many others.
  • EDXRF measures the X-ray energies of the detected elements.
