  1. In the absence of readily available standards, the SpectroStandard® XRF Reference Materials Preparation Kit offers an alternate choice in accommodating infrequent or "out of the ordinary" sample unknowns. The unique assemblage of assorted compounds contains 50 elements to prepare "in-lab" reference materials for single or multiple elemental analyses.
