This listing is for one unused Jan 1b63a Gas Swching Waveguide Electron Tube containing less than 0.019uCi of Co-60.
In 1983, this 1b63 was manufactured with at least 1 microcurie of Cobalt-60. After three decades, its activity should have diminished to less than 0.0193 microcuries. Although the remaining activity is undetectable with a Geiger counter, it can still be analyzed using Radiacode 101, 102, or Gamma Spectroscopy. When employing a Radiacode, the most accurate results can be obtained by using Lead shielding and the background subtraction feature.
The buyer must assume responsibility for this item and use it according to its intended purpose. It is illegal to remove the Am-241 sample from the ion chamber. Keep this away from children and store it at least the feet away from anywhere anyone spends a lot of time.
