XRF Course hosted by Wirsam Scientific

From the 22 to the 26th of May XRF users from around South Africa and neighboring African countries gathered at the Wirsam Scientific head office in Johannesburg for an introductory course in Practical XRF Analysis.

The course was well attended and delegates had the opportunity to expand their XRF knowledge in a theoretical and practical manner. Delegates were encouraged to bring their samples for testing, 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 as well as the Katanax fusion machine.

The workshop was presented by Dr. Clive Feather (Geological Consultant) and from Wirsam Scientific Marius de Jager, Benjamin Marrian, George van der Walt & Alex Wagner.

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
