X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is a technique that is known for its ease-of-use by not requiring injections, sample digestion, or combustion. Within the broader scope of elemental analysis, XRF is seen as having a lower threshold for training technicians. XRF sample preparation, however, is still dependent upon its operators to properly prepare their samples and input the data error-free to ensure that the lab is reporting accurate data.

Proper sampler preparation is perhaps the most critical component to improve repeatability. Poor sample preparation and contamination when preparing samples are the primary causes for repeatability issues.
