TOPIQ | Best operating practices for XRF users

Quality Control in industry is imperative, this Webinar will highlight the XRF best operating practices that will ensure the daily monitoring and compliance of quality control data.

The Webinar will focus on how to ensure the XRF method is fit for purpose.

Daily check analysis is required in order to ensure that the quality from sample preparation through to the XRF instrument is monitored continuously and the data is trended. Internal round robin analysis to access the repeatability and reproducibility is essential in a well maintained quality control laboratory. International round robin analysis is important to bench mark an accredited laboratory against other laboratories.

For an analytical result to be fit for its intended purpose it must be sufficiently reliable that any decision based on it can be taken with confidence. Thus the method performance must be validated and the uncertainty on the result, at a given level of confidence, estimated. Uncertainty should be evaluated and quoted in a way that is widely recognised, internally consistent and easy to interpret.

Most of the information required to evaluate uncertainty can be obtained during validation of the method.

Method validation is the technique that will ensure that the chemical methodology will produce reliable results that will enable the customer to draw valid conclusions. Successful method validation will enhance the international credibility of the laboratory.
