The Series 6LB counter uses the novel “system on slide” concept where the shield is fixed in place while the entire sample changer and detector smoothly slides out and away from it.
The Gas Flow Proportional Counter (GFPC) has been the preferred analysis instrument for alpha/beta measurements for decades. The GFPC’s unique combination of low background and high efficiency make it ideal for a variety of sample types including air filters, water samples, swipe/smears, soil samples, and many others.
Mirion’s new Series 6LB counter traces its lineage back to the original Canberra™/Tennelec™ LB5100 (Series 1) counter developed in the 1970’s and is a direct replacement for the Series 5 XLB™ counter. The heart of the Series 6LB counter is a sample changer that is functionally similar to the one introduced in the 1970’s, but has been updated and improved many times over. In a nod to backward compatibility, the Series 6LB counter can still read the traditional binary coded decimal (BCD) sample carriers. With the addition of the optional barcode reader (S6-BR), the Series 6LB counter will also identify 2D barcodes, newer 3D QR type codes, and even RFID tags through the use of near field communication (NFC) technology. An additional benefit of the barcode reader is that the unit can be configured to automatically snap a picture of the sample to verify that it was inserted correctly.
