High quality geo-environmental products and services for XRF analysis

PANalytical offers an extensive suite of X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis products and services for geo-environmental analysis.

Expert XRF analysis of trace elements

PANalytical Nottingham specializes in low-level determination of trace elements in geological, environmental and industrial materials, carrying out multi-element determination using XRF spectrometry. Many elements are analysed to low ppm or even sub-part per million e.g., selenium, molybdenum, thallium and cadmium. With almost 50 years of experience in XRF, we proudly offer expertise and specialist analytical solutions to solve a broad range of XRF-related issues.

PANalytical XRF solutions include, for example:
• Standards production
• Fusion
• Omnian software
• Pro-Trace

With access to an extensive range of scientific facilities, we offer ‘complete’ sample characterization and are often used as ‘referee’ laboratory.


To complement our analytical services PANalytical also provides expert knowledge, accredited reference standards and tailored custom applications and standards.
