Addressing common challenges like mineralogical effects, expensive calibration standards and more

We’ve asked our viewers to share their top challenges during elemental analysis. We’ve noticed common trends like matrix effects, accuracy in light elemental analysis, mineralogical effects, calibration and having to procure expensive calibration standards. Accurate and precise elemental analysis is dependent on the quality of calibration standards used. And yes, finding high quality standards for a given analytical range can be challenging and also expensive. In this webinar, our application specialists provide knowledge on how fused bead analysis provides better precision and accurate elemental analysis for both light and heavy elements. They will also introduce Malvern Panalytical’s in-house synthetic standards, known as WROXI (wide range of oxide materials). 

This addresses major issues faced with pressed powder analysis. Learn about how you can accurately analyse a very wide concentration range in a single calibration, when used in combination with the Fundamental Parameters (FP) matrix correction model.

What will I learn ?
1. Tips on achieving better precision elemental screening
2. Learn about synthetic standards in the market; namely Malvern Panalytical’s WROXI
3. See how these standards can be used as a primary fused bead calibration or to verify in-house standards for pressed powder applications (using fusion)
4. Understand how WROXI can be applied across materials including silicates, carbonates, phosphates, rocks, soils, iron ores, manganese ores and cements
5. What’s new in fusion sample preparation and fusion borate technology
