Software for spectrometry complexes
Software for spectrometry complexes SpectraDec is intended for identification of radionuclides in samples with the use of a liquid scintillation counter.
That method is patented in the USA, Finland, and Russian Federation. Tasks, solved with the aid of the SpectraDec complex and the liquid scintillation counter, cover the following fields:
• Radioecological investigations;
• Radiation hygiene and radiation medicine;
