Radiochemical testing in environmental analytics
We use gamma spectrometry to measure the radiation emitted by radioisotopes. This includes potassium (K-40), caesium (Cs-134, Cs-137), and in acute situations further isotopes such as iodine-131 (I-131). Furthermore, we can also determine beta emitters such as strontium-90 (Sr-90), as well as tritium (H-3) in water.
Relatively large samples are required for radiochemical testing, which depending on the sample matrix and required limit of detection can be anything up to 5 kg. As a rule, the measurements are not destructive. Our experts can gladly provide you with advice.
