Bicron Microrem Low Energy
is back-ordered. We will ship it separately in 10 to 15 days.
An industry standard detector for making tissue equivalent measurements of variations in background and low level radiation. Frequently used at nuclear facilities to provide a tissue equivalent (accurate) measurement for radiation dose rates. The Microrem is much less prone to over-reporting dose rate from low energy photons like many other low level radiation detectors utilizing NaI or other non-tissue equivalent detection media.
This is a Low Energy version with a mylar window on the case and on the detector itself to allow measurement of low energy photons.
Dose range from 0-200,000 uR/hr (Analog meter scale 0-200 with X0.1, X1, X10, X100, X1000 selector)
