A great opportunity to discuss the use of ViridiScope in a laboratory environment
The AIWG (Analysts Informal Working Group) travelled to Corwen for a meeting that included a demonstration of ViridiScope. It was a great opportunity to talk to experienced analysts who are responsible for the measurement of radioactivity in their laboratory. Although we are used to seeing ViridiScope deployed on nuclear sites in, sometimes, quite extreme conditions, it is also possible to use laser sampling in the laboratory to avoid crushing and grinding contaminated material. It was also nice to dispel the myth that an inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometer cannot move outside the lab, when we showed our ICPMS on a trolley, ready to be taken on site.
