The state-of-the-art radionuclide laboratory of IAF comprises latest, well-maintained and calibrated equipment for time-efficient analyses of nuclides of highest precision and reliability, including the following:
- 14 n-type gamma spectrometers (ultra-low level) suitable for measurements in an energy range from 10 keV including in-situ gamma spectrometer,
- A 10 channel alpha beta low level counter,
- 34 alpha spectrometers,
- 4 ultra-low level liquid scintillation (LSC) spectrometers (3 TriCarb 3170, Quantulus 1220),
- Oxidizer A307 for Tritium (H-3) and C-14 analyses after incineration,
- Mobile monitor for Tritium (H-3) and other radioactive noble gases such as Rn-222, Kr-85 and others.
IAF also operates a comprehensive pool of field equipment and in-situ measurement devices, such as:
- Various down-hole gamma probes for the determination of radium and uranium profiles in drillholes, pipes, containers etc.,
- Various measuring devices for ambient gamma dose rate and contamination monitors (our contamination monitors are calibrated against the laboratory equipment so that in-situ and field measurements directly allow an approximate determination of specific activities),
- More than 20 radon monitors for the determination of outdoor and indoor radon/progeny concentrations including radon dynamics in buildings,
- Mobile gamma spectrometers with GPS location tracking,
- Various measurement devices for the determination of physical and meteorological parameters.
Depending on the site and problem specific requirements we also use radon solid state track etching detectors of renowned suppliers.
