The system fits conveniently into a large hard case and includes the detector, shielding, containers, MCA and computer system. The included software package includes a comprehensive utility for wide range of sample materials. The flexible system can accommodate liquids and solids and can be modified in the field with limited technical support. Analyzing radiation in foods such as milk, meat, fish, grains and fruits can be accomplished. Soil, water, fertilizer and other materials can also be analyzed. Results are presented in Bq/l or Bq/kg depending on the geometry used.
Radioactive material in the sample is detected with a sodium iodide or cerium bromide scintillation probe using a Marinelli geometry for soil, water, and bulk samples or a 2-inch filter geometry for wipes and air samples. Depending on the sampling time and the isotope, the detection limit is approximately 10 Bq/l and can easily identify concentrations of Iodine 131, Cesium 134, and Cesium 137.
