Americium-241 in the form of Americium Oxide (Am2O3) is available as a bulk material in two different grades depending on application. The principal difference between the grades is the removal of other isotopes (Am-243 and Cm-244) from the material. Am-241 is typically used in the preparation of low energy gamma sealed source used in analytical instrumentation, neutron sources used in process industry and oil exploration and production and manufacture of smoke detectors.
Am-241 is shipped inside sealed capsules that have been qualified as special form material in order to meet transport regulations.
Product will be shipped in Type -A packaging.
