Quantitative Elemental Analyzer: Measure Elements from Mg-U

For many of the elements listed above, Bruker handheld elemental analyzers can calculate the quantity by weight percent in order to produce quantitative chemical composition data. Whether or not quantitative data can be obtained from any give sample depends on a variety of factors including density, homogeneity, elements of interest, and elements present in the sample matrix. For more information regarding qualitative versus quantitative data, please see the XRF Data Primer, or contact our team of elemental analysis specialists in order to discuss your specific analytical needs.
