The SpectroWipeTM Wipe Test Counter is a compact radiation measurement device for determining levels of contamination in Nuclear Medicine laboratories and other environments where radioisotopes are used.
It includes a 1024-channel Multi-Channel Analyzer for precision peak detection and isotope identification by gamma spectroscopy.
Counting data, spectra, and activity data are displayed on a large, bright LCD display with adjustable contrast. With a maximum count rate of 100,000cps and a high efficiency NaI detector, the SpectroWipe performs wipe tests in a minimal amount of time.The easy-to-read display and menu-driven user interface make wipe test counting easy and efficient, streamlining quality control and safety procedures, while reducing paperwork and manual record keeping.
The spectrum is displayed while it is being acquired, along with the count rate, total counts, and time remaining. Background is automatically subtracted. When the counting is complete, the detected peaks are displayed, the identified nuclides are listed, and the calculated activities are displayed for each. The total activity is also displayed, automatically converted to the desired units (DPM, ?Ci, or Bq), and exceeded trigger levels are indicated.
Wipe test, background, and calibration data are archived, and reports can be printed on a serial or parallel printer, or the data can be exported via RS-232 to a computer, in spreadsheet format, and then printed from the computer.
Settings are stored by location, including trigger level, energy range, nuclides, LLD, and ULD. Up to 20 numbered and named locations can be stored. The system contains a database of radionuclides which stores the half-life, peaks, ROI, and efficiency for each. Data is saved in 128kB flash memory. Available reports include monthly, weekly, and daily activity by location.
Tested to EN61010-1 and equivalent UL/CSA standards for CAN/USA certification by TUV Rheinland, and tested to EMC standard EN61326 for CE compliance.
