Analytical Suite Metadata

pXRF (Mining Mode), 40 elements reported



Analyses were carried out in “Mining” mode to obtain data for 40 trace elements.  45 s dwell times for each of the Main, Low, High and Light filters (total analysis time = 180 s) were used for each sample spot.  “Balance” is also reported, which represents the X-ray energy levels that are not attributed to a specific element.

N.B. For the purposes of loading data into the database, detection limits have been set arbitrarily to 1 ppm for every element.  This is an extremely crude first approximation.  For many elements, the true detection limit is undoubtedly much higher.
