Contamination Diagnostics

Contamination diagnostics aims to identify and map chemical and/or radioactive contaminants in order to prepare, if necessary, an efficient and safe decontamination operation. A preliminary risk analysis allows to define the investigation methods and the adapted collective and individual protection equipment.

  • Preliminary documentary study and risk assessment
  • Definition of trackers and matrix for contamination analysis
  • Definition of the contamination thresholds to be reached, in accordance with the equipment’s future use
  • Definition of sampling and analysis methods for trackers
  • Chemical and radiological in situ or ex situ measuring and analysis equipment
  • Detailed contamination mapping
  • Adapted collective and individual protection equipment, installation of airlocks
