Radiation Protection Measurements

Ionizing Radiation and Radioactivity

We care for quality - activity determination in food, drinking water, building materials and environmental samples


Samples of various materials, from food, drinking water and consumer products of daily life to industrial/commercial remnants and environmental media are analysed in the accredited laboratory for ionizing radiation and RP.

Tailored to the type of radiation and sample matrices we operate a variety of radioanalytical systems:

  • Gammaspectrometry utilizing High Purity Germanium Detectors
  • Low-Level Liquid Scintillation Counting for quantifying Alpha, Beta and Auger electron emitting Radionuclides
  • Low-Level measurement chambers for simultaneous Gross Alpha/Beta Counting
  • Alphaspectrometry with Surface Barrier Detectors
     

By application of suitable, quality controlled measurement procedures we produce reliable results - to ensure compliance with legal regulations and limit values.

Building Materials

CE-marking is mandatory for building materials since 2004 (EN 12620). This demands quantification and limitation of the content of natural radioactivity. Determination of "Building Materials Index" is carried out according to ÖNorm S5200.

Drinking Water

In the regulation on "Quality of Water for Human Use"  ("Trinkwasser-Verordnung"), BGBL. II Nr. 304/2001 is listed as an indicator parameter. Determination is carried out according to ÖNorm S5251.

Food and Environmental monitoring

Measurement results serve for monitoring purposes to ensure compliance with legal regulations and limit values related to handling or radioactive materials. Thus, results contribute to safety of consumer goods and health protection.
