A Geiger Counter is an instrument used for detecting and measuring ionizing radiation. Also known as a Geiger–Mueller counter (or Geiger–Müller counter). Geiger counters are used to detect radioactive emissions, most commonly beta particles and gamma rays. The counter consists of a tube filled with an inert gas that becomes conductive of electricity when it is impacted by a high-energy particle.
Geiger Counter is widely used in applications such as testing food and water from a polluted environment, detecting high X-Ray radiation in hospital/treatment, avoiding radiation level of your new house or building materials, and analyzing science projects.
Our GQ’s GMC product is a nuclear radiation detector. They are able to detect Beta, Gama, X-ray, Alpha radiation (some models).
