  KEVEX 770 X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometer, purchased in 1991, allows rapid turnaround, inexpensive analyses for a wide range of elements. These elements can be analyzed quantitatively if suitable standards exist, or semi-quantitatively. The XRF instrument is fully-automated and holds sixteen samples at a time. It uses source-tuned incident x-rays for optimal analysis conditions for a given element and has a high-resolution energy dispersive detector. Located in Denver.
