Radiological Food Screening System

A complete, transportable food analyzer for quickly determining whether raw or processed food has become contaminated from a radiological event.

Tag Features

  • Rapid screening of processed or raw food products for key 131I, 134Cs and 137Cs nuclides
  • Clear, immediate indication if any nuclide-specific maximum permissible concentrations are exceeded
  • Transportable using compact and wheeled detector shield
  • Supports wide range of samples including 1 L Marinelli, metal food cans, beverage cans and plastic containers
  • Completely battery-powered – from laptop PC’s USB port
  • Room temperature operation with option for temperature stabilization if measurements will be made out of doors
  • Powerful Genie™ spectroscopy algorithms teamed with the intuitive Genie-FieldPro™ interface designed specifically for this application
  • Turn-key system is provided ready to count, calibrated for typical sample types in a range of common sample containers
  • On-site training and /or start-up assistance available from local Mirion representative


With the FoodScreen Radiological Food Screening System, food analysis efficiency is at the forefront of our design. A sample is placed into the shield, a count is initiated and a final report is generated. The report lists activity or minimum detectible activity concentrations found in the sample for key nuclides of interest for food products: Iodine-131, Cesium-134 and Cesium-137. Based on nuclide-specific limits predetermined by the system manager, the report will also state whether the sample is “Clean” or “Above Limit”.

The FoodScreen system includes a 2 x 2 in. NaI(Tl) detector (optionally temperature stabilized), 7F7 Mobile FoodScreen Shield, a NORM* KCl calibration check source, Osprey® Universal Digital MCA Tube Base, industry-standard Genie Spectroscopy Software Suite, including the Genie-FieldPro application to streamline and simplify counting operations.
