Wipe Test Counter

​The Gammasonics Wipe Test Counter is easy to use, easy to understand, fast and dependable. When performing a wipe test, the full spectrum is displayed. A wide window that includes the isotope energies expected in a particular department is set by the user. The efficiencies of the isotopes selected for the window can be either factory defaults or user determined using an integrated detector efficiency program. Individual isotope ROIs along with the wide window can be set. This feature helps identify the isotope(s) causing contamination.

The Wipe Counter is designed to meet or exceed all NRC (10 CFR 35.70, 10 CFR 20.1906 and 10 CFR 35.2067) and state wipe test requirements. There are automated programs for the quality assurance functions: calibration, FWHM, chi-square and minimum detectable activity (MDA). Wipe test results and QA test data can be downloaded to a PC, stored and printed at any time
