SAM 945

The SAM 945 is designed to meet ALARA standards by use of its smart phone technology; the operator can be 20 feet away from the SAM and the radioactive source. After the data is collected and a spectroscopic report is generated, the Smartphone App allows you to quickly add images and video and enter manual notes into the report. The SAM 945 is designed to include, at a minimum, a 3 x 3 inch sodium iodide (NaI(Tl)) scintillation detector. High resolution detector options are available that can include a GM tube and/or a neutron detector.The standard smartphone included with the SAM 945 is the Motorola Moto G.
