Geochemical Determination of Materials by Portable X-Ray Fluorescence Method

Delta XRFThis method uses a portable x-ray fluorescence (PXRF) device to measures trace elements in a variety of sample materials including sediment, metals, paints, ceramics, glass and lithic samples. Obsidian is excluded from this service.

Fee includes sample preparation, PXRF data collection, data analysis, report generation and transmittal of data to customer. First sample in a request is charged the maximum rate, which includes equipment set-up, supplies and equipment tear-down. 

Cost: $31.00 for the first sample, $10.00 for each additional sample.
