Description

Details

For your convenience, we have made recommendations on how to carry out measurements of food products using “FoodTester-G”. Follow these recommendations to make measurements correctly and get accurate results.

Purpose of use

  • Measurement of ambient dose equivalent rate (DER) of gamma radiation.
  • Detection of cesium isotopes in food products along with evaluation of their specific and volume activities.
  • Detection of cesium isotopes in soils along with evaluation of their specific, volume and surface activities.


Groups of food products to be tested

Soil types to be tested
 
Advantages
  • Mobile, practical.
  • No special training of the user is required, operates in the interactive mode.
  • No certain container for a food product is required, takes measurements by being put to the food product.
  • No special preparation of the food product is required (the food stays inside the container/packing).
  • No special protection is required.

 

Components of FoodTester-G

  • detecting unit based on the scintillation detector of gamma radiation (CsI - scintillator-photodiode)
  • Android device* (a smartphone or a tablet PC which runs the Android™ operating system) with the installed specialized software.

*Android is a trademark of Google Inc.

Data communication is done via the Bluetooth channel.
