ALPHA SPECTROSCOPY:

  • Sample preparation is very tricky and the lab operator must be good chemist. To achieve good quality result separation technique is utmost importance.Techniques used for separation include co-precipitation, solvent extraction, ion exchange and extraction chromatography. The analysis time is longer( many days) but very low MDA is achieved .
  • There is always chance of vacuum contamination during this test.

There are only few companies who manufacture Alpha Spectrometer. These are as follows:

  • ORTEC
  • Canberra Instruments
  • ITECH Instruments
  • Baltic Scientific Instruments
Alpha Spectrometer are designed as 2 ,4,8 or 12 chamber modular units which are connected with MCA. These chambers operate under vacuum. The detectors are charged particle detectors which ave very high resolution.The output is analysed on computer which is loaded with alpha spectroscopy software.

 

LIQUID SCINTILLATION COUNTING:

  • This technique have lower processing/testing time but the resolution is compromised.
  • There are only few companies who manufacture LSC . These are as follows:

    1. Perkin-Elmer

    2. HIDEX

    3. HITACHI

We ate T2T can provide following services:

  • - Training on Alpha Spectroscopy
  • - Instrument Selection
  • - Sedimentation studies
  • -Sample transport¬†
