Oak Ridge, TN (PRWEB) October 26, 2011
Nationally recognized radiation safety firm Dade Moeller is pleased to announce that its new Radioanalytical and Calibration Laboratory is open for business, offering sample analysis, radioactive sealed source leak testing, and instrument calibration services. The laboratory, previously located in Gaithersburg, Md., currently serves 100 private sector clients and was moved to better meet the needs of current and future operations. Dade Moeller also expanded its Oak Ridge office space to accommodate the laboratory and planned company growth.
“Since opening our office in Oak Ridge one year ago,” said Eastern Operations Vice President Darrin Lawrence, “we have successfully established our presence supporting Health and Safety, Environmental, and Radiological programs in the Oak Ridge complex. Relocating our Laboratory promotes further growth in Oak Ridge, and allows us to capitalize on additional personnel and equipment resources to expand the depth and quality of our services.”
The laboratory’s state-of-the-art liquid scintillation and gamma counting technology can process different types of samples, including swipes and smears, sealed source leak tests, liquid waste samples, and filter or swab tests. Dade Moeller also maintains NIST-traceable radioactive sources for use in instrument calibration, including a 1.6-Curie Cesium-137 source under Tenn. license number R-01111-J21. To date, Dade Moeller has processed 98,570 sample analyses, 78,950 sealed source leak tests, and 580 calibrations through the laboratory at its former Md. location.
Dade Moeller’s office expansion included the 800 square foot laboratory, 10 new offices, a second conference room, and reception and kitchen areas. The office is located in Suite C-104 of the Pine Ridge Office Park at 704 S. Illinois Ave.
