- Completely Dissolving Wipes for Environmental Tests
- Greater Counting Efficiency
- Increased Reliability
- Safe and Easy to Use
Nuc-Wipes are dissolvable pads which assure superior environmental
wipe tests. Nuc-Wipes are completely soluble in any scintillation
solution, and because Nuc-Wipes dissolve completely, no emitted beta
ray can be hindered or absorbed by an undissolved portion of the
wipe. Nuc-Wipes allow full 4π counting efficiencies, thereby
eliminating the possibility of lost counts due to absorption of beta
rays by the filter itself.
Using intact filters for environmental wipe tests can give
inaccurate, erratic results. Beta rays originating from particles on
intact filters are attenuated and absorbed by the filter.
Furthermore, depending on the relative affinity of the material for
the solution, as material leaves the filter for the solution, counts
change over time.
Nuc-Wipes eliminate the dependence of results on
the direction of the filter paper and time. Because Nuc- Wipes
dissolve in scintillation fluid, there is no intact filter to absorb
or attenuate beta emissions. 4π counting efficiency is achieved,
giving reproducible results.
