AFAIK, he current owner of New England Nuclear is PerkinElmer
(http://las.perkinelmer.com/TechnicalSupport/default.htm )

However, finding a special form certificate for a source of this vintage
will be difficult! You may get the sealed source registration of this source
through them. But if it is for shipping purposes, you can always ship as
non-special form.

Subject: [ RadSafe ] XRF Exciter Source Am-241

Dear RADsafers,

I am in the process of disposing an old subject source, and therefore in the
need of a special form certificate for this (type of) source. Googling
around (including RADsafe archives) was not very helpful, hope that someone
of the list can help me out.

Source manufacturer: New England Nuclear (URL of their homepage [if any]
migth be helpful, I am also not in the possession of their [e-]address
and/or phonenumber)
Source data: NER 491 Mod 1 (read from backside), but our data base claims
the source to be LEA 66
Text at back: XRF Exciter System
>From our data base I derive that this source has been manufactured at the
seventies of the former century.

Kind regards,
