LAE, LED-UE and LED-UD laboratories have a wide range of analytical equipment in order to measure radioactivity in all types of matrices and for all types of emission rays :
Gamma ray SpectrometryWith 9 HPGe detectors for gamma emitters analysis, LAE and LED-UE laboratories may identify and quantify any natural or artificial radionuclides in liquid, solid or gaseous samples.
Alpha SpectrometersWith 29 silicon detectors for alpha emitters analysis, LAE and LED-UE laboratories may quantify Uranium isotopes, Thorium isotopes, transuranium elements (Plutonium, Americium and Curium), Polonium 210 in all matrices.
Gas proportional counterWith more than 100 detectors for gross alpha and beta analysis (3 counters type IN20 and 6 counters type LB770), LAE laboratory may detect very quickly radioactivity in liquid and solid samples.
Liquid scintillation countersWith 5 liquid scintillation counters for beta emitters analysis, LAE and LED-UE laboratories can quantify Tritium, Carbon 14, Strontium 90 and Nickel 63.
Photomultiplier CountersWith 30 photomultiplier counters, LAE and LED-UE laboratories measure Radon or Radium in water using scintillation cells, and measure aerosols collected on filters.
Gamma exposure measuring systemsWith 2 thermoluminescent dosimeter readout systems, LED-UD laboratory measures effective dose Hp10 for workers exposed to natural radioactivity and ambiant dose rate H*10 for environmental survey.
DSTN analysis system for Radon and PEAc measurementWith 2 specific automatic analysis systems and 4 optical microscopes equiped with cameras and counting software, LED-UD laboratory analyse Radon detectors used for initial investigation in buildings. LED-UD laboratory is the only French laboratory qualified for the regulatory dosimetric survey of workers exposed to natural radioactivity.
