Scaler/Ratemeter - Wipe Test Counter - Model 2200
The Model 2200 is a general purpose scaler with an accompanying ratemeter, and is typically used for counting samples. Its rugged design and construction allow both benchtop and portable applications. The wide-ranging AC power supply and internal batteries are capable of powering the instrument upwards of 120 hours. The Model 2200 supports GM, proportional, and scintillator-type detectors, and provides fine adjustment controls for setting the high-voltage and threshold settings.
An adjustable discriminator and an adjustable window allow the user to count pulses within a user specified energy range. This portable unit can be powered by wall current or by four "D" cell batteries. The latter allows for continued operations during power interruptions. An optional printer (Model 4167-386) is available for hard copy archival of wipe test results.
The Ludlum Model 2200 Scaler/Ratemeter is the ideal economic solution for routine sample counting, single channel analyzing and routine radiopharmaceutical related procedures, when used with the Model 243 well scintillator (NaTl) detector. The Well Counter's 4π geometry and 1.3 cm (0.5 in.) shielding provides excellent sensitivity to higher energy isotopes like 131I.
