  • Quality control put to the test

    X-RAY FLUORESCENCE spectroscopy (XRF) is ideal for quality control as it is non-destructive, requires simplesample preparation, and is very fast and accurate. Alternative techniques often require time-consuming, costly, andpotentially hazardous preparation before measurements can be made. The MiniPal QC is the latest addition to Panalytical’s successful line of MiniPal benchtop XRF ...

  • RoHS & WEEE compliance: analysis of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and acrylonitrile-butadiene styrene (ABS) polymers

    XRF has emerged as an optimal solution for the screening of toxic heavy metals regulated by the EU Directives, RoHS and WEEE. PANalytical's MiniPal 4 RoHS WEEE – an energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer – provides a RoHS/WEEE screening function of the restricted elements. This datasheet describes a straightforward, robust method for the analysis of RoHS elements in two very different ...
