Dear Radsafers:
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation will surplus an operational (with a little routine maintenance) Harshaw Thermoluminescent Dosimeter (TLD) Reader (Model 6600) and Irradiator  (Model 6610) System.  The TLD Irradiator contains a licensable cesium-137 radioactive source.  
An additional piece of laboratory equipment in need of surplussing is a Tennelec Low Background LB1000 gross alpha/gross beta proportional counter.  This is an older rack-mounted stand-alone design (not computer controlled) instrument was never put into use by the Department.   Anyone interested in using this piece of equipment would need to purchase a licensable alpha/beta source in order to operate it.  
Since this is State owned equipment, DEC would prefer to surplus these laboratory instruments to a New York State entity (governmental or educational) which could use them and is capable of accepting responsibility for the radioactive material.  If a New York entity does not express an interest, out-of-state entities would be considered.  Interested parties should contact John Mitchell at jimitche at gw.dec.state.ny.us.
Thank you in advance.
