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.
The General Radiation Protection Ordinance 2020 §123 para. requires compliance with a reference value of 1mSv per year for external exposure in occupied rooms due to gamma radiation from building products.
The determination of the radioactivity content in building materials is carried out according to ONR CEN/TS 17216. The evaluation of the activity concentration index is carried out according to OIB guideline 3 or guideline 2013/59/Euratom.
