Radioactivity Detection Facility
Our radioactivity detection facility offers opportunity to utilize radioactive materials in research. It is equipped with a liquid scintillation counter, Perkin Elmer Tri-Carb 3110 TR. The equipment is used to detect radioactivity of low energy radioisotopes particularly β-emitters e.g. tritium and carbon-14. Storing and use of radioactive materials are in compliance with the guidelines provided by USM Safety and Occupational Health Unit, Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB) and Malaysia Nuclear Agency.
