Radiation Alert Gamma PAL for Food Testing

Portable Analysis Lab, for Detecting Radiation Contamination in Food, Soil, and Water

GammaPal general overviewThe GammaPAL is the ideal system for detecting contamination in food, soil, and water. This is a portable laboratory containing all the items needed for sampling in the field or from a stationary location. 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. This system includes the Inspector survey meter with wipe test plate and swipes for preliminary testing, a rugged Nomad Pocket PC with bar code scanner for labeling samples, tools for sample collection, and screw top marinelli beakers for sample storage.

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, a 2x2 NaI scintillation detector is included.

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 500 ml 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.
