We develop method to extract elemental abundance ratios using temperature-insensitive ratios of x-ray line fluxes for a collisionally ionized plasma. This method is then refined using more realistic plasma models for coronae of active stars. We finally apply the method to multiple sources and compare the results to those obtained via Emission Measure Modeling.
