Theory of Liquid Scintillation Counting Book

Understanding of the Principles of LSC

Liquid Scintillation Counting (LSC) today is the most sensitive and widely used technique for the detection and quantification of radioactivity. This measurement technique is applicable to all forms of nuclear decay emissions (alpha and beta particle, electron capture, and gamma ray emitting radionuclides). Liquid scintillation counting is an analytical technique which measures activity of radionuclides from the rate of light photons emitted by a liquid sample.

The Liquid Scintillation: Science and Technology book, edited by Michael J. Kessler, Ph.D., presents the theory of liquid scintillation counting, including chapters addressing:

  • Applied spectrum analysis
  • Quenching and efficiently
  • Theory of dual label DPM measurements
  • Statistics of liquid scintillation counting
  • Sample preparation and sample oxidation

The 174 page download contains the original figures and content in an updated format. The reprint is used to describe the science and basic principles of understanding Liquid Scintillation Analysis and does not represent the latest instrument, reagents and cocktails. Scientists involved with liquid scintillation technology will find the book invaluable.
