Becquerel Laboratories is a global leader in neutron activation analysis and radiological testing. Becquerel`s expert analyses are typically requested by government regulators and environmental consultants to help measure trace levels of radioactive contamination that may be present in soil, water or sediment. Becquerel also serves the manufacturing, mining and product testing industries to help determine the trace elements in raw materials and finished products.

FEATURED SERVICES

Becquerel - Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA) Services

NAA is a physical technique that is based on nuclear reactions. Samples are not pretreated - they are packaged and then irradiated in a research reactor. The samples become radioactive when neutrons interact with the nuclei of the elements’ atoms. Radioisotopes are formed and subsequently decay by emitting gamma rays that are unique in half-life and energy. These distinct energy-signatures provide positive identification of the targeted elements ...

Becquerel - Radionuclide Testing Services

In Canada, the primary source of radioactivity in the environment is naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM). These levels may be technologically enhanced (TENORM) as a result of human activities such as the processing of raw materials (mines) or the application of fertilizer. As public concern for the environment grows, new or lowered limits are being legislated by governments around the world.
