Search Dosimeter Radiometer MKS-07 POSHUK

Search Dosimeter Radiometer MKS-07 POSHUK

Multipurpose search device intended to detect and localize sources of gamma, beta, alpha and neutron radiation.

The standard delivery kit includes gamma and beta radiation detecting units. Alpha and neutron radiation detecting units can be ordered separately.
