MULTIPLE LABORATORIES Laboratories needed for certification testing of technique to produce reference materials of a very resistive material by micro-analysis (LA-ICP-MS, µXRF, LIBS etc.). Right now we are in the planning stages of certifying a magnetite (Fe3O4) reference material.Therefore, we are looking for several laboratories to participate in our round robin. Since magnetite is a very resistive mineral I was wondering if you have the capabilities to dissolve it since conventional acid digestions (i.e. aqua regia HF perchloric acid) fail to do so.The usual way to go is Na-peroxide or Li-borate fusion with subsequent analyses.We are going to do a screening, using LA-ICP-MS, of the samples on the 6th of February. Afterwards we will be able to give you some more information on desired analytes an their concentration range.Please le
