Please note:


In order to guarantee standard conformity of analysis the sample material must be ground to a grainsize < 63 µm, dried at 105°C and we need the value for the loss on ignition, LOI, as a kind of pre-preparation of the sample..

Consequently and if obligatory we carry out the sample preparation as mentioned obove - grinding, drying, determination of LOI - even though you have not explicitely ordered it.

Quantitative analysis of a fused bead for 12, 16, 20 or 40 elements according to DIN ISO 12677:2012, DIN EN 15309:2007

For the analysis of oxide and oxidizable samples composed of a wide range of different materials such as, for instance, glass and glass fibres, soils, rock, mineral raw materials, ceramic or mineral-bonded construction materials etc.

This process involves adding a flux, lithium tetra borate, to the sample material, followed by fusing in an oxidizing atmosphere after which the sample is rapidly cooled down to form a homogenous fused bead, which is then analysed with utmost precision.

The fundamental parameter programme Omnian provides a matrix-independent, quantitative, semi-quantitative or qualitative XRF analysis of unknown samples with a variety of material properties and different organic and inorganic compositions.

Samples can be analyzed either after preparation or without preparation and non-destructively in case of a suitable composition, i.e. X-ray and vacuum stable and depending on their surface condition.
This enables us to determine element concentrations between the minimum detection limit, usually 250 µg/g and 100%.

Underestimated exposure to asbestos: Many do-it-yourselfers unknowingly put themselves at risk

"Warning of 'asbestos wave': 9.4 million homes in Germany are 'asbestos traps' when renovated" - this was the title of a press release recently published by the Industriegewerkschaft Bauen-Agrar-Umwelt (IG BAU), an industrial trade union, launching an information offensive on the subject of asbestos. We welcome the broad thrust of the IG BAU and the current great public attention for the topic of asbestos and would like to make a few, from our point of view, important additions to the current reporting. ... read more
