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 reactor schedule for Petten through December 2019 is available here, and for 2020 here. The Delft reactor will be down from May 6 2019, expecting to start again in Q1 2021, but for protocols 3 and 4, we can perform irradiations at the HFR in Petten. The reactor schedule for Petten is available here.

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