INAA

Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis (INAA) is a chemical analysis technique that allows for multi-element concentration determinations through nuclear processes.

The Laboratory for INAA is part of the Reactor Institute Delft and offers to perform such analyses for third parties. The laboratory has a non-accredited quality system in accordance with ISO-IEC 17025:2005.

INAA can only be performed when the reactor is up. The Delft reactor has been down from May 6 2019, expecting to start again in Q2 2021, but for protocols 3 and 4, we can perform irradiations at the HFR in Petten. Have a look at the reactor schedule for Petten: 2021.

See the links below for a detailed description of the technique, possibilities & prices.
