Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (EDXRFS) is a rapid, non-destructive, and cost-effective analytical method for qualitative scan of elements in a sample and quantitative determination of major and selected trace elements in samples from parts per million (ppm) to percentage level. EDXRF Laboratory located at Hyderabad (Headquarters), is equipped with Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) Spectrometer (Model EX-6600 of Xenemetrix, Israel) having Silicon Drift Detector (SDD). The analytical precision (%RSD) for major and trace element is within 1-5% and accuracy (% error) is within 10%.

Variety of geological materials such as rock, soil, and coal fly ash soil are analysed by EDXRFS for determination of SiO2, TiO2, Al2O3, Fe2O3(t), MgO, MnO, CaO, Na2O, K2O and P2O5, and selected trace elements such as Cr, Ni, Cu, Zn, Ga, Rb, Sr, Y, Zr, Nb and Pb.
