Practical introductory XRF training hosted by Wirsam Scientific

From the 23rd to the 27th of July 2018 XRF users from around South Africa and neighbouring African countries gathered at the Wirsam Scientific head office in Johannesburg for an introductory course in Practical XRF Analysis. The workshop was presented by Dr. Clive Feather (Geological Consultant) and from Wirsam Scientific, Benjamin Marrian, George van der Walt & Alex Wagner.
The course was well attended and delegates had the opportunity to expand their XRF knowledge in a theoretical and practical manner. a large portion of the practical was dedicated to the importance of sample preparation. The course theory was instrument-neutral, however, the hands-on demos were done using the Rigaku XRF’s, Sciaps hand held XRF and LIBS, as well as the Katanax fusion machine.
The last day ended on a high note with an afternoon braai and a social get together. The delegate’s feedback was extremely positive, and they mentioned they can't wait to put the information they learned into practice. For more information about our upcoming training courses please contact
