Test Tube Source

Test tube sources are designed for use as reference sources in well type detectors or clinical instruments. Each source is constructed using a polypropylene tube and is offered in two sizes: 12 mm x 75 mm and 13 mm x 100 mm.

The source material is deposited in the bottom of the tube and sealed using epoxy.

All test tube sources have an uncertainty of ± 20% of the labeled activity unless calibrated (± 5%) for an additional cost.

Alpha and beta sources cannot be calibrated.
Not all isotopes can be used in the manufacture of a test tube source.
