XRF Radiation Safety Training

Thermo Fisher Scientific Portable XRF Analyzer Training

Thermo Fisher Scientific offers free safety training for customers and prospective customers. We recommend that operators of Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ portable XRF analyzers receive radiation safety training prior to using the analyzer. Safety training may be required by state regulatory authorities as a condition of licensing/registration.
