This textual content is prepared into six chapters and starts with a historic evaluate of liquid scintillation counting, emphasizing significant occasions that prompted its improvement: the invention of natural compounds known as ""scintillators"" and the advent of photomultiplier tubes. This e-book considers the standards that impact the functionality of photomultiplier tubes, together with temperature and magnetic fields, and using liquid scintillation counting to degree radioactivity. The dialogue then shifts to the standards that has to be taken into consideration while making a choice on a style for getting ready samples, together with the actual and chemical features of the pattern, the isotope or isotopes of the pattern, and the predicted point of radioactivity. the next chapters examine the overall concerns while fitting a liquid scintillation counter, strategies for making use of radiotracers, and functional facets of pattern guidance.
This publication is meant for physicists and experimental biologists.
