If you analyze iron-based materials using Spark OES, you are likely familiar with set up samples (SUS). But do you know why set up samples are so critical to your analysis?
The new ARMI | MBH combined catalog offers the largest portfolio of metal alloy reference materials of any provider in the industry.
Metal samples are often considered to be one of the easiest sample types to measure using XRF, but an incorrectly prepared surface can have a huge impact on the quality of the measured data. The quality of the sample preparation will impact every aspect of the analysis, from the calibration through to analysis of unknown materials.
