The Model 971 Food-SSAFE Kit (Spectrum/Sample Analysis and Food Examination Kit) from Berkeley Nucleonics offers non-technical equipment users an easy method for measuring radiation levels found in fish and meat products, liquids and soil samples. The nuclear radiation found in food is measured and reported by a software algorithm coupled with a sensitive NaI (sodium iodide) detector. Food products (beef and poultry, fish, vegetables, water samples or grains) are placed in a Marinelli beaker then insulated with a lead shield.
