Tri-Carb 2910TR

The Tri-Carb 2910 TR is a computer controlled benchtop liquid scintillation analyzer (LSA) capable of analyzing small amounts of alpha, beta, and gamma radioactivity. It has a robust sample changer mechanism with an electrostatic controller and a double light sealing shutter for maximum stability, keeping the photomultiplier tube detector on even during sample change. It is featured with TR-LSCfor high sensitivity, low background counting, increasing sample throughput and reducing cocktail consumption. Its multichannel analyzer provides 1/10 keV resolution, offers an extended dynamic quench range, and provides multi-parameter spectrum analysis to correct for luminescence, color quenching, and background radiation.


Projects are initiated by a meeting of the user, principal investigator, Core Director and Core Manager.  Contact Mr. Tej Shrestha.  
The Core provides individual training.  
Trained users coordinate instrument use via the Scheduler.



Nanotechnology core facility equipment use is currently free for properly trained persons, with approval of the lab manager.  However, a fee structure will be implemented long-term.  This fee structure is expected to be similar to that of the other core labs on campus.
