Measurement of radioactivity

Gamma emitting radionuclides – Rapid screening method using scintillation detector gamma-ray spectrometry

(ISO 19581:2017); German version EN ISO 19581:2020
Class/Status: Standard, valid
Released: 2020-07
VDE Art. No.: 0400397

This standard specifies a screening measuring procedure to rapidly assess the activity of gamma emitter radionuclides (such as radio-iodine and radio-cesium isotopes) in solid or liquid test samples using gamma-ray spectrometry with NaI(Tl) detectors. It can be used for the measurement of any environmental (including soil), food samples or industrial products.
