DIRECTIONS FOR MEASUREMENT
Food sample preparation
Foodstuff should be cut into small pieces of about 5mm size and brought in clean
packages (in plastic bags, plastic containers, etc.) At least 1 liter of food or liquid
sample is required for measurement.
Please note that when the amount of samples is not enough, the results will be less
precise. If you are not able to bring the required amount of samples please consult us.
We ask you to remove unnecessary parts of food such as fruit skin or internal organs
before cutting the foodstuff into small pieces.
Soil Sample Preparation
At least one liter of soil sample is required for the measurement.
You should make your sample from soil gathered from five different points in the land to
be measured. One point should be the center of the land and the other four should be
from the center of each quarter section of the land.
You should get vertically some 15 cm thick block of soil, and each portion should have
the same dimension (for example: 10㎠.) Mix the five portions well into one sample to
make it more than one litter.
Special measurements may require more than this amount.
Please avoid taking soil samples right after rain.
It’s preferable that you gather soil samples about one week before the measurement day.
２．Food sample data
You should fill out specific data of food samples in the “Soil Radiation Measurement
Please bring the necessary information and your personal seal with you.
There is limited parking space at the center. Please use nearby pay parking lots when this
parking lot is full.
