Isotope Identification Tool Available For Emergency Services

Berkeley Nucleonics : 24 January, 2011  (New Product)
SAM 940 is now available from Berkeley Nucleonics enabling emergency services personnel to make fast and accurate identification of isotopes in nuclear incidents
Berkeley Nucleonics is introducing Eagle+, an algorithm development that provides faster discrimination of Gamma and Neutron Radiation. The updated GUI gives the First Responder or Emergency Management an intuitive tool for making decisions.



The SAM 940, widely respected as the fastest Isotope Identifier in the industry, now simplifies it’s “Easy-Mode” for front line use. The Dual-Tachometer indicates Gamma and Neutron levels in Counts Per Second, will concurrently recording isotope specific dose rates for a broad isotope library. In addition to typical ANSI and Medical Isotopes, the SAM 940 identifies less common but equally concerning isotopes like Europium and Neptunium. Although these sources are not in the ANSI approved list, field exercises have shown the need for including our broader library of 120 Isotopes. The new release results in an easy-to-use device for fast, accurate identification of radioactive materials.



“The SAM systems are well suited for front line assessment of nuclear alarms. In these applications, a non-technical user is often required to quickly make decisions about the characterization, classification and next steps when confronted with a radiological incident”, comments Robert Corsetti, Sales Director at Berkeley Nucleonics.



The SAM 940 ‘Easy Mode’ gives non technical users the ability to quickly survey, identify and quantify materials that require immediate considerations. The SAM 940 reporting features are equally easy to use?the operator doesn’t even need to push a button and meaningful spectra and ID is collected. A full-spectrum report that identifies and quantifies radionuclides is available for managerial review. The new operating system for First Responders coupled with Gamma and Neutron Detection represent the next advancement in Isotope Identifiers.
