Development of a transportable system for radionuclide analysis
- 41 Downloads
Transportable radioanalytical systems were assembled and tested for quantitative determination of γ-emitting radionuclides and screening of β-emitting radionuclides. Standard operating procedures (SOPs), including instructions for assembly, disassembly, operation, sample collection and analysis, and all other procedures needed, were developed. Foods, as well as National Institute of Standards and Technology, International Atomic Energy Agency, and in-house Reference Materials were analyzed. An SOP for γ-emitting radionuclides was successfully tested at 3 locations.
