Tritiation Manifold System (RC Tritec) is based on U-Bed Technology to provide fresh, 3He-free Tritium for tritiation by simply heating the UT3-bed, also allowing the recovery of surplus gas after completion of a reaction.
2470 WIZARD2 Automatic Gamma Counter (Perkin Elmer) is a high-throughput instrument with 5 independent well-type detectors measuring simultaneously detection of γ-ionization. Radionuclide library consists of 45 nuclides: such as 125I, 131I, 18F, 57Co, 99mTc, 64Cu, 67Ga, etc.. Sample changer has a storage capacity of 55 racks (550 samples). The instrument is installed in A.3.76 and available for your self-service use after short training. An automatic or manual counting mode, multi-user capability and multitasking operation environment provide flexible and efficient sample processing. Energy range is 15-1000 keV. Maximum count rate is 6 million DPM (app. 5 million CPM) for 125I. WorkOut Plus™ with QA software for RIA/IRMA and custom data analysis and reporting lets you easily create and transfer custom reports. Measured data are stored on ownCloud IOCB service system and can be easily reached from your computer.
Radio-TLC scanner RITA (RAYTEST, Germany) with software GINA STAR TLC enables automatic quantitative measurement of radioactivity distribution on up to two 20×20 cm TLC plates. Using 20 mm entrance aperture of the detector enables to measure 9 single traces on one 20×20 cm plate. With 3 mm entrance aperture the 2D distribution of radioactivity on TLC plates developed in two directions perpendicular to each other can be measured and evaluated. The position sensitive proportional detector continually flushed by the counting gas (mixture of 90% of argon and 10% of methane) measures the whole trace at once and this gives way to high sensitivity in reasonably short counting times.
Radio HPLC-LS (Waters Alliance) is an analytical and semi-preparative HPLC system equipped with the e2695 Separation module, 2995 PDA detector and Empower 3 software for processing of data. The system is combined with a radioactivity-HPLC flow detector Ramona Star (Elysia-Raytest) able to detect with high sensitivity whole spectrum of emission (α, β, γ) of analyzed samples. Photomultipliers with a 2” diameter photocathode provide highest sensitivity and very low background. Liquid scintillation admixture is the most sensitive detection method for very low energy beta minus nuclides such as 3H. Alternative internal solid scintillators offers almost the same efficiency for 14C as liquid scintillator admixtures. The number of counts per interval time is transferred to a PC operating Elysia-raytest`s GINA* program.
Assembly consist of Waters Delta 600 solvents delivery system, Waters 2470 dual wavelength UV detector, RAMONA radioactivity detector from Raytest (Germany) and Waters RS Fraction collector III. PC data collection and running software is EMPOWER 2.0 from Waters.
CoMo 170 (Graetz, Germany) is a portable contamination monitor for α, β and γ surface contamination. The detected events are counted over time and displayed digitally in c/s, Bq or Bq/cm2.
- CoMo is using 2 scintillator materials. For the detection of α-radiation ZnS is used, for detection of β and γ radiation a plastic scintillator foil is used.
- The large area detector window is permeable for low energy α radiation like 238U, or beta radiation like 14C. The thin window can be replaced easily by the user and measurements can be continued without delay.
- The light flashes generated by the α or β/γ radiation can be separated by pulse analysis. Nuclide specific sensitivity is calculated and alarm values are pre-programmed.
- This instrument is available for your need - e.g. a mandatory weekly lab survey of your supervised area - in A.3.82 after request.
