This Protactinium generator is ideal for demonstrating radioactive decay. The half-life of the isotope is short enough for students to complete the decay curve within a single lesson and is perfect for use with a datalogger and GM tube sensor or a standard GM tube and counter. The generator is completely sealed in a leakproof enclosure and consists of uranyl nitrate and an organic solvent. These settle into two distinct layers but when shaken together react and produce a short term burst of Beta radiation with a half-life of about 1 minute.


  • Supplied complete with MSDS
  • Recommended storage period up to 8 years
  • Bottle dimensions 120 x 70 x 70mm
