TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jan. 7, 2015) -
NOT FOR RELEASE IN THE UNITED STATES OR TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES.
Eurocontrol Technics Group Inc.
(TSX VENTURE:EUO) ("Eurocontrol" or the "Company"), a Canadian public company specializing in the acquisition, development and commercialization of innovative energy security, authentication, verification and certification technologies, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Xenemetrix Ltd., is pleased to announce the launch of a state-of-the-art web-based database of the X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) spectroscopy field available at www.learnXRF.com.
This website is a source of information dedicated to assisting students, scientists and manufacturers better understand XRF spectroscopy. The website covers sample preparation techniques and introduces principles of XRF and also contains the general interpretation of spectra, applications of XRF spectroscopy as well as a reference section that lists articles of interest and books that provide more in-depth information on XRF.
XRF was originally utilized to analyze geological samples, however as the technique developed with the advancements in computers and technology, XRF found its place in many different types of analytical laboratories. With advantages such as easy sample preparation, non-destructive rapid multi-element analysis, and the ability to screen unknowns in a wide array of sample matrices such as liquids, solids, slurries, powders, pastes, thin films, air filters, and many others, XRF offers a perfect complement to other types of analytical equipment found in the analytical lab. Because of these advantages the technique has a broad appeal to research, industrial, and quality assurance analysts.
