Abstract This report unveils the measures taken to calibrate the newly installed x-ray fluorescence instrument X-Supreme 8000 in Multi-User Science Research Laboratory Ahmadu Bello University Zaria. Precision and accuracy is dependent on appropriate method set up and suitable analyte conditions. The tube current was set to achieve 20 dead time for silicon drift detector SDD. The tube voltage setting with at least twice line energy of elements aided method set up for spectrum scan from which region of interest ROI was utilized to check interferences and matrix effect. Air readily absorb low energy x-ray thus the analysis chamber was evacuated with helium for low Z elements up to Niobium Nb. Direct proportional relationships occur between concentration of analytes and detector count per seconds cps. The standard error of mean of given and calculated concentration of standard reference materials SRM range between 0.001 0.013wt. A relatively low standard deviation and repeatability of results confirms good precision and accuracy of the instrument.
