GammaPAL - Portable Radiation Analysis Lab
the ideal instrument for detecting contamination in food, soil, and water.
A portable laboratory containing all the items you need for sampling in the
field or from a stationary base of operations. The GammaPAL is a complete
measuring system for analyzing radiation contamination in milk, meat, fish,
grain, fruit, and vegetables, as well as in air swipes, soil samples, and other
materials. Includes: Inspector survey meter with wipe test plate and swipes for
preliminary testing, a rugged Nomad Pocket PC with bar code scanner for easily
labeling samples, tools for sample collection, and screw top marinelli beakers
for sample storage. The GammaPAL is your all-in-one sampling kit for radiation
Our GM based detectors are ideal
for a number of applications, ranging from surface contamination and sampling to
personal and environmental monitoring. For detecting contamination in
food, soil, and water and to accurately quantify and qualify the results, you
need a scintillation detector. Many scintillation devices with this capacity
cost upwards of tens of thousands of dollars. The GammaPAL can provide these
capabilities for much less.

Radioactive material in the sample is detected
with a 2x2 sodium iodide scintillation probe using a Marinelli geometry
for soil, water, and bulk samples or a 2-inch filter geometry for wipes
and air samples.The 500ml beaker is placed in a 1-inch thick lead shield.
Depending on the sampling time and the isotope, the detection limit is
approximately 2.5-100 Bq/l and can easily identify concentrations of
Iodine 131, Cesium 134, and Cesium 137.
