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.

Access:

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.

 

Fees:

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.
