Description

Innovative analytical methods for the determination of radionuclides are essential to optimize and reduce costly and time consuming sampling, and simultaneously to reduce potential radiation exposure of the operating personal. The AUTORAD platform is an automated and portable system for the separation, pre-concentration and determination of key radionuclides using flow scintillation counting. AUTORAD uses a Lab-on-Valve device coupled to a multi-syringe module, allowing detection at ultra-trace levels depending on the system configuration and counting time. It has been applied and qualified for the determination of 90Sr, an important fission product generated during irradiation of nuclear fuel, in view of radiation protection, environmental monitoring, radioecology, facility decommissioning and radioactive waste management.
