Individual certified reference material (CRM) are an essential addition to a portable XRF kit. Forming a part of a QAQC procedure CRMs can be the difference between good and great results. 

Why use this?

A CRM is designed to verify the readings of a portable XRF as part of a typical quality assurance and quality control (QAQC) sampling procedure. Materials within a CRM vary, but they all function in the same way within a QAQC procedure. 

Who needs this?

We highly recommended to anyone that owns their portable XRF to have a CRM that matches the material they are regularly analysing in their kit. This will form part of a reliable QAQC procedure.

Please note: All of PSS hire portable XRF instruments come with a range of CRMs in the hire kit.
