Atomlab Wipe Test Counter

The Atomlab® Wipe Test Counter is easy to use, easy to understand, fast and dependable. A color touch-screen display utilizing intuitive software eliminates the tedium of wipe testing. Simply perform a daily calibration and background count, then count the wipe for each predetermined location. Trigger levels can be set for any isotope at any location including 200 dpm for iodine. In seconds the system will determine if the location is above or below the user defined trigger level.

When performing a wipe test, the full spectrum is displayed. A wide window that includes the isotope energies expected in a particular department is set by the user. The efficiencies of the isotopes selected for the window can be either factory defaults or user determined using an integrated detector efficiency program. Individual isotope ROIs along with the wide window can be set. This feature helps identify the isotope(s) causing contamination.

Up to 50 wipe locations can be entered as a restricted area, unrestricted area, sealed source or package. The results are displayed in dpm, cpm, µCi or Bq.

The system consists of a lead shielded 2″ x 2″ sodium iodide (NaI) well detector and a 64 channel multi-channel analyzer. The displayed energy range (spectrum) is 0-800 KeV, which is typically found in nuclear medicine departments.

The wipe counter is designed to meet or exceed all NRC (10 CFR 35.70, 10 CFR 20.1906 and 10 CFR 35.2067) and state wipe test requirements. There are automated programs for the quality assurance functions: calibration, FWHM, chi-square and minimum detectable activity (MDA).

Wipe test results and QA test data can be stored in memory and printed at any time.
The Atomlab™ Wipe Test Counter can be upgraded to include a fully functioning Atomlab™ Dose Calibrator simply by adding a new chamber. The “Smart Display” detects which chambers are connected and instantly reconfigures the screen to the appropriate icons.
