Analysis of Metals in Aerosols on Air Filters
24 August 2016

This application note demonstrates the use of Rigaku’s NEX DE EDXRF analyzer to detect metal, especially toxic heavy metals, in aerosols on air filters. The NEX DE combines filtered direct excitation with a high performance SDD detector capable of 500,000+ cps throughput to deliver excellent sensitivity for measurements. The analyzer is also capable of elemental analysis from Na – U, making the XRF technique ideal for other elements on the air filters as well.
