Gamma Spectroscopy

RSSI analyzes environmental, commercial, and research material for radiation using high-resolution gamma spectroscopy.  Using this system, RSSI can identify the type and quantity of naturally occurring and man-made radionuclides in a sample.

Our high-resolution gamma spectroscopy system is used to test samples such as:

  • Soil containing naturally-occurring or man-made radionuclides;

  • Vegetation, foodstuffs, and raw materials near nuclear disaster sites such as Chernobyl or Fukushima;

  • Water, sludge, and filter media from water or sewage treatment facilities;

  • Components of building materials;

  • Precursor chemicals for industrial production; and

  • Environmental samples from fossil and nuclear power plants.

Depending on the required radionuclides, gamma spectroscopy samples are analyzed either on receipt or after an in-growth period of at least 30 days.  In either case, reports are available within 5 business days of the sample being analyzed.  As with all of RSSI's laboratory services, expedited turnaround is available.  Samples requiring an a radon daughter in-growth period are held at no charge.
