Wipe Test Fixture for
Advanced Survey Meter
The Wipe Test Fixture for Advanced
Survey Meter (Model 489-200WTF) uses
a high efficiency NaI(Tl) scintillation
probe (Model 489-200) in conjunction
with a lead-shielded sample holder. It
employs a removable wipe-test holder
or tray positioned below the shielded
probe. Under these conditions, background radiation is minimized and
wipe-test counting is maximized.
Key features
• Effectively detects removable
radioactive contamination
(wipe testing)
• High 99mTc efficiency
• Direct reading capability with
ASM-990 and 992 Advanced
Survey Meters and isotopic
calibrations
• Removable wipe test sample
holder positioned below
shielded probe, minimizes
background radiation and
maximizes wipe test counting
Applications
The Wipe Test Fixture evolved from
the need to more-accurately measure Technetium-99m ( 99mTc). Most
users don’t realize they are not accurately measuring 99mTc when using a
Geiger-Mueller pancake probe. Because of an inherently poor 99mTc efficiency,
Geiger-Mueller pancake probes are incapable of accurately measuring 99mTc
samples in a timely fashion. In order to meet current NRC and Agreement state
regulations, it is necessary to count 99mTc samples for a minimum of 30 minutes
per sample. The Wipe Test Fixture is designed to precisely measure 99mTc within
30 seconds at efficiencies far surpassing those currently in use. It counts effectively in rate mode and displays in any known unit, including “dpm 99mTc” or “μCi
99m
Tc”. When used with the ASM-990, or 992 advanced survey meters, the Wipe
Test Fixture can be calibrated to various other isotopes, thereby expanding its role
as a wipe-test counter.

Indicated/Actual
Designed for use in conjunction with the ASM-990 Series and
other standard GM survey meters, the 489-110D can detect
alpha, beta, and gamma radiation. It is configured for operating
convenience in table-top and floor surveys as well as surveys
of personnel and equipment. Prime applications for this probe
include nuclear medicine counter tops and frisker stations,
leakage detection for low energy diagnostic x-ray machines,
geological and environmental surveys or any place where there
exists the suspicion that some form of radiation is present, especially emergency response teams.
For storage and carrying ease, the probe fits into the standard
handle clip on a survey meter.
The GM probe comes in two configurations: 489-110D with
an ABS plastic housing, MHV connector, and foam grip, or 489110E with a BNC connector. This selection of connectors provides
the ability to attach the GM probe to most GM survey meters on
the market. Replacement foam grip handles are available: 489130-44. This same probe design is available in a rugged metal
housing as 489-110C.

Survey Meters and Probes
GM probes for qualitative
radiation detection—the
Geiger-Mueller (GM) detectors fulfill a wide variety
of radiation measurement
needs for alpha, beta, gamma
and x-ray sources. Some
probes have are provided
with a 360° shield to permit
discrimination between penetrating and non-penetrating
radiation.
The GM detectors have a
field-proven design to ensure
dependable performance,
reliability and ruggedness. Standard MHV type
connectors readily allow
interchange of all detector
probes. The life expectancy
of the counters ranges from
108 total counts to unlimited life depending on the
type of quench gas utilized.
Enhanced sensitivity to lowlevel alpha, beta, gamma and
x-ray radiation is achieved
when using the unique
498-110D Pancake GM Probe.
The following probe selection guide lists various
probes and suggested applications. Applications include
nuclear medicine counter-top
surveys, leakage detection
from diagnostic x-ray and
linear accelerators, geological
surveys, scrap metal yards
and unknown wells.

PRIMALERT® 35 Area
Radiation Monitor
The PRIMALERT 35 Area Radiation Monitor contains an energy-compensated GM detector and has
six range indicators (1, 2, 4, 8, 16, and 32 mR/hr)
that can clearly display an increase or decrease
in radiation levels. The visible and audible alarms
can be set at any of the six levels by a front-panel,
screwdriver-adjustable control. When each preset
radiation level is exceeded, personnel are alerted
by bright flashing red lights (visible over a 180°
field) and a loud intermittent audio signal. The
alarms stop automatically when the radiation level
falls below each of the preset values. This permits
instant radiation-level recognition not readily distinguishable on meter-type instruments.
Fail-safe operation is assured by a light which continuously
indicates background radiation and provides visual proof that
the unit is functioning. The monitor will not jam or show false
readings in high radiation fields. A mounting bracket and a
110 V ac adapter/power converter are also included.
Key features
•Provides continuous visual
indication of radiation levels
and produces audible and/
or visual alarms at any of six

Bleeper mR Radiation Monitor
The slim, compact Bleeper mR
is the ideal personal monitoring
device for alerting personnel
to the presence of radiation in
medical, industrial or research
settings. It accurately measures
and displays the radiation dose
received.
The only control is a switch
to turnoff and reset the instrument, making Bleeper mR
extremely easy to use. For
added safety, the switch is
recessed. An easy-to-read LCD
display provides a continuous
indication of accumulated
dose. The loud “bleep” sounds
every 15 to 30 minutes on
background and becomes more
frequent as dose rate increases,
becoming a continuous sound
in high radiation fields. A series
of quiet “clicks” indicates it is
properly functioning. Bleeper
mR is an enhanced version of
the highly popular Bleeper III
and utilizes the same proven
technology.
Key features
•Continuously monitors radia-
tion exposure and provides
instant, accurate readings

Direct-Reading Pocket Dosimeters are rugged, precision instruments designed
specifically for measuring accumulated quantities of gamma and x radiation. In
use, the dosimeter is normally clipped to a pocket or to the outside of a lead apron.
By checking the dosimeter reading periodically, the wearer is able to determine
the exposure received during specific procedures. By knowing where and when
greater-than-normal exposures occur, the wearer can identify the source and take
quick, corrective action. We currently offers five dosimeters. Each dosimeter has
a color-coded clip that signifies its range. This will help the user to identify the
dosimeter (i.e. black clip = 0 to 200 mR, blue clip = 0 to 5 R, etc.), and ensure that
the intended dosimeter is utilized.
Direct-Reading Pocket Dosimeters are extremely easy-to-use. To read the integrated exposure, the user looks through the dosimeter eyepiece while pointing the
unit toward any external light source. The exposure is determined by the position
Specifications
of a hairline fiber against a
graduated scale. A Dosimeter
Charger (Model 06-912) is
used to re-zero the dosimeter.
The 0 to 200 mR LowEnergy Dosimeter is the most
popular type for measuring
personal radiation doses in
hospital applications including
fluoroscopy, portable radiography and angiography.
Our dosimeters are ideal
for nuclear medicine and
health physics applications.
All Direct-Reading Pocket
Dosimeters are hermeticallysealed using state-of-the-art
plastics and epoxy resins.
These reliable, high-quality
devices meet ANSI specifications N13.5 and N322, as well
as military requirements.
