Improved automated gamma counting system suitable for the determination of low levels of radiocaesium activity in these samples. Improvements in performance as compared with the existing DFR system were considered in the following areas: • sample — preparation, geometry, and position with respect to the detector.

The chickens were fixed on a special board by their legs and neck to reduce, as much as possible, any movement. In vivo activity of Cs was determined using a gamma spectroscopy system with stabilized NaI/Tl detector (3×3 ins.

i.e. 75×75 mm, in a 10 cm thick lead box). Spectra with correction for background were evaluated using the system installed by Silena SI/A for PC, including MCM Cited by: 1. An automated delayed neutron counting (DNC) system has been developed at the Royal Military College of Canada (RMC) to enhance nuclear forensics capabilities pertaining to special nuclear material.

The objective of this paper is to compile selected caesium concentrations in seafood and seawater (the key OSPAR indicators) from the data submitted by the United Kingdom to the OSPAR Commission. The impact upon the surrounding environment of the Irish Sea and North Sea has been determined from trends of caesium concentration data over time, from the start of the OSPAR Cited by: 1.

Among the well-known viable cell count methods developed so far, manual counting with a hemocytometer has been the most commonly used method due to its low cost and method depends on the analyst’s ability to evaluate different cell attributes regardless of the cell type; in addition allows using different staining techniques according to the purpose of the analyses ().Cited by: The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) is the state-based standard-setting organization governed by the chief insurance regulators from the 50 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S.

What is manual system or what is automatic system: The main difference between manual and computerized systems is speed. Accounting software processes data and creates reports much faster than manual systems. Calculations are done automatically in software programs, minimizing errors and increasing efficiency.
