АТ1316A Whole Body Counter

AT1316A Whole Body Counter (WBC) is designed for express-monitoring and measuring of gamma-emitting radionuclides in human lungs ("Sitting straight" geometry).
  • Stabilized spectrometric path
  • Spectrometric and radiometric measurement modes
  • Total activity threshold excess monitoring for 51Cr, 54Mn, 58Co, 59Fe, 65Zn, 95Nb, 100mAg, 103Ru, 124Sb, 141Ce and 144Ce in lungs
  • Efficient and highly sensitive algorithm for instrument spectra processing utilizing matrix method for activity estimation
  • Radionuclide identification in spectrometric mode
  • Flexible software control of spectrometer functions, generation of database and report based on measurement results
  • Fixed chair geometry
  • Compact design
  • Prompt accommodation to background conditions using operational background generating option
  • Can be installed into a van as part of mobile radiation monitoring laboratory
  • USB Counter-to-PC connection
Citizens and staff individual dosimetric monitoring of internal exposure:
  • Citizens and staff monitoring during and after radiation accidents
  • Factory and office workers monitoring, involved into radioactive material production or use
  • Nuclear Power Plant staff monitoring
WBC operating principle is based on detection of incorporated gamma-emitting radionuclides activity in human lungs with spectrometric detection unit and processing of spectrometer measurement information with hardware-software instruments to define radiometric characteristic of internal contamination considering anthropometric characteristic of target person.
