This course is designed as an introduction to liquid scintillation counting and alpha counting and is intended for radiochemists, technicians and others who will be doing this work in the laboratory. It will also be useful for quality assurance officers, radiation safety officers and data validators who may need to understand measurements produced by liquid scintillation counting and alpha counting. Approximately half of the course will be devoted to classroom instruction and the remaining half will be spent on laboratory exercises. Special attention will be given to the quality assurance aspects of both methods. Please call for a course outline.
The course will end at approximately 2:00 pm on the last day. Traffic can be very congested in the Atlanta area, so adequate time should be allowed for travel to and from the airport and also for travel between your hotel and the course location each day.
The course will be held at the facilities of Nuclear Technology Services, 635 Hembree Parkway, in Roswell, Georgia. More detailed information including suggested hotels, will be sent in the confirmation packet to those who register.
For groups of 4 or more, this course can be scheduled to fit your needs.
