Standard Practices for the Measurement of Radioactivity

1.1 These practices cover a review of the accepted counting practices currently used in radiochemical analyses. The practices are divided into four sections:

 

Section

   Alpha Counting

12 – 22

   Beta Counting

23 – 33

   Gamma Counting

34 – 41


1.2 The general information sections contain information applicable to all types of radioactive measurements, while each of the other sections is specific for a particular type of radiation.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
