The Basic Nuclear Lab System is a complete student station designed for high school and college level nuclear science instruction. The model ST160 is an updated replacement for the older ST150 and incorporates USB technology to connect to IBM compatible computers. The system may be used with or without a computer and consists of a 6-decade scaler/timer with built-in Geiger-Mueller counter, sample positioning tray and 11- piece radiation absorber set.
The system features a large LED display, variable high voltage for plateau measurements, serial interface and cable with software for data transfer to either the PC or Mac, experiment manuals and a set of alpha, beta and gamma radioisotope sources. Data files are stored in spreadsheet compatible format for graphing and manipulation prior to printing.
