FIT screening

The FIT-based screening test is easy and therefore manages to attract high participation rates – the main driver behind the success of any national or regional screening programme. Generally, national or regional administrations assume responsibility for managing the logistics, financials and efficiency of the programme in close cooperation with their selected laboratory partners.

XRF Spectrometers

Energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence technology (ED-XRF) provides one of the simplest, most accurate and most economic analytical methods for the determination of the chemical composition of many types of materials. It is non-destructive and reliable, requires no, or very little, sample preparation and is suitable for solid, liquid and powdered samples. It can be used for a wide range of elements, from sodium (11) to uranium (92), and provides detection limits at the sub-ppm level; it can also measure concentrations of up to 100% easily and simultaneously. Also analyzing unknown samples without the need for calibration is possible nowadays with the SPECTRO XRF instruments, using the TurboQuant software developed by SPECTRO. This program makes exact knowledge of the composition of the matrix unnecessary. The software recognizes the matrix specific backscatter from the sample and automatically determines the sample matrix. TurboQuant only needs to know the physical condition - solid, powder or liquid - of the sample, in order to achieve acceptable accuracy for even completely unknown samples.

About SPECTRO XRF Analyser
SPECTRO is a world leader in the manufacture of energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometers. In recent years, SPECTRO has set standards by further developing X-ray fluorescence technology to create many new fields of operation for ED-XRF spectrometers. The company offers a complete range of X-ray fluorescence portable spectrometers such as the small handheld XRF, xSORT and the SPECTROSCOUT, a portable spectrometer that brings lab-grade analysis into the field. SPECTRO also brings to market a broad range of bench-top ED-XRF spectrometers for special elemental analysis tasks to multi-purpose laboratory spectrometers for trace element analysis, and a wide range of on-line solutions - whatever your specifications, we can meet them.

Applications
Typical uses include the analysis of oils and fuel, plastic, rubber and textiles, pharmaceutical products, foodstuffs, cosmetics and body care products, fertilizers, minerals, ores, rocks, sands, slags, cements, heat-resistant materials, glass, ceramics, wafers; the determination of coatings on paper, film, polyester, and metals; XRF RoHS testing, positive material identification, the sorting of metal alloys, glass and plastic according to their constituent materials; and the monitoring of solid waste, effluent, cleaning fluids, pools and filters.
