Energy Dispersive X-Ray fluorescence (EDXRF) technique for the analysis of geological, biological and environmental samples is described. The technique has been applied in the analysis of 10 (geological, biological, environmental) standard reference materials. The accuracy and precision of the technique were attested to by the good agreement between our measured results and the certified values of these standards. The measured and the certified values were generally within 5% of each other except for a few cases that were within 15% of each other for the geological samples.
