Radioactivity services

Solid reference material proficiency test exercises

Ensuring accurate environmental monitoring

NPL’s solid reference materials contain radionuclides at or near the working level for use by laboratories making measurements of radioactivity relevant to environmental monitoring and decommissioning.

Reference materials are vital for accuracy in measurements relating to the decommissioning and environmental monitoring sectors. We can supply both real samples and artificially spiked reference materials that reflect samples which are taken from both the environment and nuclear sites.

We currently have a limited amount of solid reference materials from previous exercises which are available.   

If you are interested in any other reference materials, please contact us.
