Automation of XRF Analysis

ND LIT is currently in the process of automating the sample analysis system. Currently, the XRF analysis and data input must be done manually. A typical kit takes about 10 minutes to analyze the samples and log all the corresponding information. ND LIT's goal is to create a system in which that time is reduced and requires less constant attention from an analyst, which will allow us to increase our test kit throughput. ND LIT is working alongside a group of engineering students here at the University of Notre Dame to streamline this process and we hope to see the analysis process streamlined during the fall of 2018.
