Without having to rely on deconvolution of peaks, WDXRF technology delivers superior short-term repeatability, lower detection limits and better long-term reproducibility.
Good short-term repeatability is necessary but not sufficient to meet performance expectations: It gives only a "snapshot" of pump capability.
For example, using an FR-4 epoxy sample, the short-term repeatability is within 0.
4) addresses the two limiting cases: short-term repeatability (one lab, one equipment, one person, testing in immediate succession) and reproducibility (many different labs, testing at possibly different times).
