AP6A Large Area Alpha Probe

Catalog number: AP6B
Achieve fast, efficient monitoring of alpha contamination levels across large area flat surfaces. The Thermo Scientific™ AP6A Large Area Alpha Probe is a very large, incredibly lightweight scintillation detector that provides a quantitative assessment of radiation detection in minutes. More efficient than air proportional counters and more practical than gas flow counters, the AP6A Large Area Alpha Probe is well suited for applications in nuclear medicine labs, HAZMAT spills, radiation safety office surveys, industrial hygiene, industrial x-ray manufacturing and geological surveys.
