Since 1993, Rock Island Arsenal’s (RIA’s) Material Laboratory Division has been licensed and certified by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to provide the U.S. Army Armament Chemical Acquisition and Logistics Activity with radiation wipe test analysis. RIA has provided leak test analysis of radioactive commodities to more than 3,000 DOD customers located throughout the world.
With two low background alpha/beta flow proportional counters for counting alpha/beta radioisotopes, and two liquid scintillation counters for analyzing low energy alpha/beta emitters, RIA has developed an accountable process to sample, analyze, and report quantitative results with a quick turnaround time of less than or equal to 10 days. RIA’s reports also provide customers with information and directions on corrective actions that need to be taken when radioactive levels exceed acceptable levels. RIA’s Material Laboratory Division has demonstrated that it is capable of providing customers with quality radioactive analysis in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
