XRF is short for X-Ray Fluorescence, which refers to the emission of ‘secondary’ x-ray radiation from an element which has been
bombarded with ‘primary’ x-ray radiation, i.e. radiation from an external source.


The emission of this secondary radiation is known as ‘fluorescence’, and its measurement provides the mechanism for XRF spectrometry.

We provide specialised material identification services using Niton portable XRF equipment.

Over many years experience in Validation/QA for the pharmaceutical industry one recurring theme has been lack of definitive material certification at IQ stage. The only way to resolve this is with a retrospective non-destructive test.


Our kit can be used to identify almost any type of alloys e.g. stainless steel (most commonly 316, 304).

We also have the capability to identify precious metals and have worked with in the field of numismatics, Chinese bronzes and art & antiquities.

Watch the video below for a great example of why you should always check the materials of construction!
