Activity is a measure of the amount of radionuclide(s) in a material emitting
ionising radiation. Activities in samples are measured in Becquerel.
Berthold offers several instruments for alpha-beta or gamma counting.
Especially for environmental samples or wipe tests there are low or even
very low detection limits required. Our low-level counters meet these
requirements. They use special background reduction techniques,
selected detector materials and lead shieldings to provide excellent
MDAs. There are also other instruments for instance for food
The LB 200 is a very simple measuring system for the assessment of gamma activity in foodstuffs, liquids and bulk goods.
The LB 2045 is a modern gamma spectroscopy system for activity measurements in laboratories.
The α / β measuring system allows simultaneous determination of α- and β-activities in different samples.
The 10-channel Low-Level Planchet Counter LB 770 offers simultaneous, separate α-β measurement of 10 planchets.
The LB 790 allows simultaneous and separate measurements of low activities for α and β radiation emitting radionuclides.
The measuring system LB 761 GD α-β Low-Level Counter for 200 mm
Planchets allows the simultaneous measurement of α- and β- activities.
The Clearance Monitor LB 2050 is designed for the measurement of the massspecific activity and the surface contamination.
