Not only radon … but also Radiocaesium

By February 19, 2018 News

Radonova Laboratories is a company that not only deals with radon, but also with the measurement of #Radiocaesium (137Cs). Last fall we measured one sample meat with very high levels of 137Cs. The English newspaper “The Telegraph” published on 6th of October an interesting article entitled “Radioactive wild boar spark concerns in Sweden 31 years after Chernobyl”. We must recall that half-life of 137Cs is 30.07 y. The article reports that the radiation level was 16,000 becquerel per kilogram (Bq kg-1). The limit for 137Cs content is 1500 Bq kg-1. At Radonova Laboratories we also perform 137Cs measurements and this is part of our accreditation ISO 17025.
