Is there a daily calibration I need to do with the Rigaku KT-100S handheld LIBS analyzer?

No, but testing a known check sample daily is recommended with the Rigaku KT-100S. Metal Analysis Group recommends periodically performing a system check using the included Aluminum 7075/Stainless Steel 316 check sample. This will serve as a basis for the unit’s performance.  The Metal Analysis Group service center will ask the customer to perform a system check if the unit is suspected to not be performing properly.
