Sample Preparation

Sample preparation is often necessary before you perform a test or process. To achieve the required degree of accuracy and precision, it is important to follow specific sample preparation procedures.

The best way to achieve this strict compliance is by using specialist sample preparation solutions.

There are several key objectives in sample preparation:

• To release the analyte (the component you wish to analyse) from the sample matrix (the sample or specimen that contains other elements or compounds)

• Remove any interfering factors on the analyte

• Pre-concentration of the analyte, where necessary

• Dilution of the analyte, where necessary.

• Produce a representative analytical sample from the bulk sample

It is important that the sample is homogeneous and available in a sufficient quantity for testing.

You must also preserve its integrity during preparation, collection and analysis, and ensure minimal loss due to evaporation or degradation or contamination.

Our range of sample preparation equipment and solutions includes XRF packages and XRF consumables, calibration reference standards, pellet presses, dies, flux dosing and fusion bead machines.
