Radiochemical Analysis Services Provided by NTS, Inc.

NTS provides analysis of environmental, bioassay, effluent, and process waste samples for a range of radionuclides.  The types of sample matrices include liquid, soil, vegetation, air filters, bioassay, and other samples.  Analytical equipment includes low-level gamma spectroscopy, low energy photon spectroscopy, liquid scintillation, alpha spectroscopy, low background gas flow proportional counter, and other analysis equipment.  



  • Gross alpha-beta analysis

  • Gamma spectroscopic analysis of fission products, naturally occurring and activation product radionuclides which include Fe-55, I-129, Ni-63, and other 10CFR61 listed radionuclides

  • Analysis of H-3, C-14, P-32, S-35, and Rn-222 by liquid scintillation counting

  • Analysis of radium, thorium, uranium, plutonium, americium, other actinides and trans-plutonium alpha emitting nuclides by alpha spectroscopy

  • Analysis of Sr-89, Sr-90, Tc-99, I-131, Cs-137, and beta emitting rare earth nuclides

  • Analysis for nuclides of radium by radon emanation-Lucas Cells and radon measurement using activated charcoal cartridges



  • Environmental samples such as water, soil, vegetable, air filters and swipes

  • Bioassay samples - urine, fecal, and animal tissues

  • Effluent and process waste (10CFR61) samples - liquid, gas, resin, particulate and charcoal filters

  • Other samples - NORM related samples, radon contamination smears, radon monitoring for enclosed buildings and open fields
