Applications range from drinking water analyses of radon, food control for 90Sr, radioactive effluent measurements at nuclear power plants, emergency preparedness for nuclear power and homeland security, radiocarbon dating, biofuel and other biobased material analyses.
With both passive and active shielding, in terms of background reduction, Quantulus far surpasses the performance of any other liquid scintillation counter. The measurements that it is capable of making in a normal laboratory are approximated only by extra low level counters in special underground installations.
The Quantulus MCA is user-controlled by logic commands that allow hundreds of tailored counting configurations in addition to default ones. For convenience, you can access samples in any order with the random access sample change. The system includes PC software to allow complete data processing and the plotting of up to six spectra on screen. Its capacity to handle microvolumes means that it provides an easy, competitive liquid scintillation counting solution for 14C-dating problems solvable by expensive Accelerator Mass Spectrometry.
Providing a practically unlimited number of parameter groups, the communication and data acquisition program WinQ (Windows version) for Quantulus co-ordinate storage of different users' work.
