Ultra High Performance Alpha/Beta Counting Systems
These systems are best used when there is a very large number of samples to be counted, and the counting times are relatively short. If unattended operation is desirable, an automatic system should be appropriate if counting time per sample is relatively short in duration, typically ranging from one to two minutes for smears and air filters and up to 30 to 60 minutes for environmental and radiochemistry samples.
Manual alpha/beta counting systems are used for a wide range of applications. Two major uses for a manual system stand out: when the number of samples to be counted is extremely low (5–10 samples per week); or when counting times are very long (30–60 minutes or longer).
These systems are best utilized for applications requiring high sample throughput and high sensitivity. Our MDS series can be configured to accommodate 4, 8, 12, or 16 detectors to facilitate the sample volume and throughput rate required.
