Located in Oak Ridge Tennessee USA, Spectrum Techniques is the premier manufacturer of
Exempt Quantity radioisotope sources and nuclear counting equipment. Applications
include teaching modern physics, chemistry and biology, health physics training,
radiation protection technology, nuclear medicine and research.
Most of our counting instruments will operate as stand-alone bench-top units but also
contain interfaces and software for operation with both IBM PC compatible and some
Macintosh computers. Spectrometers include interfaces to USB and plug-in PCI card
MCAs for IBM-compatible computers. These interfaces and software allow users to operate
the instruments directly from the computer keyboard and save data to files for transfer
to spreadsheets and storage. Using A/V equipment, instructors may also project the
instrument screen for classroom demonstrations.
Radioactive samples are extremely low level and present no known radiation hazard. They
are exempt from USNRC and IAEA licensing and may be possessed in limited quantities.
US regulations pose no special handling, storage or disposal requirements for these
exempt quantity materials.
We also offer a complete line of accessories including GM detectors and stands, absorber
sets, scintillation detectors and shields and training manuals for basic radiation
Products may be purchased as complete systems (computer not included) or as individual
components for use with your existing equipment. Most instruments operate from 9
volts DC with UL, CSA, CE approved power converters included for 100/120VAC or 210/240VAC
50/60 Hz operation around the world.
