Ultra Carry is a novel disposable (single-use) sample retainer for X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis used to preconcentrate a liquid sample into a uniform sample carrier optimized for the suppression of background noise. This approach dramatically improves the signal-to-noise ratio, resulting in almost three orders of magnitude improvement in the Lower Limit of Detection (LLD or LOD) and Limit of Quantification (LOQ) for heavy elements.
The Ultra Carry sample retainer comprises a ring-shaped support fitted with an X-ray transmissive hydrophobic film and a central liquid absorbent element pad. For routine analysis using Ultra Carry, a recommended vacuum dryer apparatus — Rigaku UltraDry — is available as an XRF accessory.
