laboratory for testing activity of radioactive isotopes

Our radiochemical analyses & services for you

LUFA-ITL GmbH in Kiel has many years of experience and state-of-the-art measuring instruments for testing all matrices for the activity of radioactive isotopes, as well as natural and artificial radionuclides.

Radiochemical testing in environmental analytics

We use gamma spectrometry to measure the radiation emitted by radioisotopes. This includes potassium (K-40), caesium (Cs-134, Cs-137), and in acute situations further isotopes such as iodine-131 (I-131). Furthermore, we can also determine beta emitters such as strontium-90 (Sr-90), as well as tritium (H-3) in water.

Sampling information

Relatively large samples are required for radiochemical testing, which depending on the sample matrix and required limit of detection can be anything up to 5 kg. As a rule, the measurements are not destructive. Our experts can gladly provide you with advice.
