Custom applications and ISO standards
To complement our analytical services PANalytical also provides expert knowledge, accredited reference standards and tailored custom applications and standards. Our Nottingham laboratory maintains a comprehensive schedule of test methods for XRF analysis of 43 elements in pressed powder pellets and 23 elements/oxides in fused glass beads for the following materials: rocks, minerals, sediments, soils, sludges, cements, cement clinker, glasses, fly ash gypsum and building materials.
PANalytical’s specialist sample handling includes high-quality analysis and preparation of fused beads for a wide range of difficult elements like fluorine and chlorine, in samples like fluorspar. Expert capabilities also extend to challenges not covered by accredited services such as analysis of manganese in polymers or preparation of milk powder reference material, to name a few.
