Analytical Suite Metadata

Bondar-Clegg INAA



The samples were analysed for 34 elements by instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA).  The analyses were done by Bondar-Clegg and Company Ltd. in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Distinguishing characteristics:

  • Ir detection limit: 5 ppb

(“Au+33” package)

General Methodology:

Weighed and encapsulated samples are packaged for irradiation along with internal standards and international reference materials.  Samples and standards are irradiated together with neutron flux monitors in a two megawatt pool type reactor.  After a seven day decay period, samples are measured on a high resolution germanium detector.  Computer control is achieved with a Microvax II computer.  Typical counting times are 500 seconds.
