Take Quality Control Beyond the Confines of Your Lab

ASM International editor, Ed Kubel facilitates this informative, FREE webinar: How Handheld XRF is Changing the Approach to Elemental Analysis. Taking the Lab into the Field.

X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry is one of the most useful nondestructive elemental analysis techniques available. It is used to measure the presence and amount of a wide range of elements in various materials across a wide variety of markets. Traditionally, benchtop XRF instruments are found in laboratories as part of quality control programs due to their accuracy, reliability, speed, and ease of use. Now, handheld XRF instruments offer new ways to improve your elemental analysis needs. Click for recorded webinar.

Sample Preparation Methods to Ensure Accurate X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Analysis

Sample preparation is the primary foundation to achieving accurate and consistent results when using both handheld and benchtop X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) analyzers. Learn about best practices for measuring, simplification of processes, and how to avoid the common issues of cross contamination using multiple methods of sample preparation such as pressed pellets, x-ray film, sample cups, grinding and certification reference and much more.  Click for recorded webinar.

Positive Material Identification for Alloy Verification and Improved Safety

X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) is a trusted method of Positive Material Identification (PMI) used to determine the chemical composition of various metal alloys through nondestructive methods essential to regulatory compliance, general safety, and to minimizing risks of catastrophic failure across several industries. Oxford Instruments has more than 30 years experience with proven XRF methods and applications to improve your quality control program through PMI. Click for recorded webinar.

Radiation Safety Basics Using X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF)

Oxford Instruments X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Analyzers are safe instruments for material analysis in a broad range of industries and applications. Numerous applications and industries utilizing this cutting-edge technology include coating thickness analysis, measuring Sulfur in oil, Positive Material Identification (PMI) and quality control in the electronics and consumer goods industry.

But what is XRF? X-ray Fluorescence is a method whereby a sample is exposed to a precise beam of X-rays. By measuring the intensity and characteristic energy of the emitted X-rays, an XRF Analyzer can provide qualitative and quantitative analysis regarding the thickness and composition of the material being tested.

Cryogen Free NMR for Academia
October 17, 11:00 a.m. EDT

NMR spectroscopy is an important analytical technique taught at the undergraduate level and used extensively by academic research groups. However, it is often the case that undergraduates don’t have the opportunity to use an NMR instrument until very late in the curriculum, or sometimes not at all. Researchers often have to send their samples to the NMR lab and wait for results to come back.

Benchtop NMR instruments allow easy access to NMR in virtually any lab - undergraduate chemistry or research group labs.

How is this possible?

Benchtop NMR instruments have no requirement for liquid cryogens or any other external services apart from a standard electrical mains supply. The cost of the instrument and running costs are significantly lower than High Field NMR systems making NMR an affordable technique for the laboratory.

However, high performance is still important in order to get the best results from your sample. Data will be presented showing that Pulsar is capable of measuring high quality spectra with fast collection times allowing rapid throughput of samples. Click for recorded webinar.
