Application Note: Trace Elemental Analysis of Organic-rich Materials
3 May 2013

Accurate trace element analysis of organic-rich materials such as coal, pet coke, biomass, and sewerage sludge is becoming increasingly important as governments. The and standards make up a unique system that offers a complete solution for trace analysis in a wide variety of organic-rich materials. This application note demonstrates the performance of the Axios mAX using 9 elements to represent the suite of elements that can be calibrated with the Pro-Trace standard. Results show that the Axios maX/Pro-Trace system is capable of measuring all elements (B – U) in organic-rich matrices with significantly improved limits of quantification.
