The Specific Activity Calculator accepts an input volume, activity, specific activity for a given isotope and calculates the amount of isotope present in the sample both in moles and moles/volume.
Access the Specific Activity Calculator by going to NucMed > Apect. Act. Calculator.
The Specific Activity Calculator requires several values to make its calculations. An activity, volume, isotope, and specific activity are used to calculate the number of excited molecules and molarity of a given sample.
||Amount of isotope as measured in a dosimeter or with the NanoSPECT.|
||The volume containing the activity.|
|Isotope||Hours||The isotope of interest and its associated half-life. Several pre-defined options are available.|
||The specific activity of the isotope being used as measured by a specific activity calibration. Specific activity describes the number of excited atoms out of the total atoms present in a given sample, i.e., the amount of the activity that has not yet decayed to a ground state.|
||The calculated amount, or number, of excited molecules in the sample.|
||The calculated molarity, or concentration, of excited molecules in a sample of activity.|
