Afternoon All


There may be a requirement to use a portable XRF device (like a Niton
etc) in the US - specifically Las Vegas. The excitation source is an
X-ray tube < 40KV potential.


I am aware of the basic safety considerations using such a device and
have fair experience of such devices in the UK (including regulatory
compliance issues).


Would anyone be able to point me in the direction of any state specific
issues that might need to be considered - if this device were used for
field study or perhaps in a demonstration (e.g. a trade show).


Thanks in advance for your help.
