CapeSym Introduces New SrI2 Developers Kit for High-Accuracy Gamma Detection

This new product offers a plug-and-play solution for spectroscopic gamma detection. The unit is optimized for maximum performance and is field-deployable.

CapeSym, Inc. announced today that they are offering a fully-integrated gamma detector made with strontium iodide scintillator crystals grown at their USA manufacturing facility. These high-performance scintillators offer energy resolution better than 3.5% at 662 keV, stopping power on-par with sodium iodide, and negligible intrinsic activity (0.03-0.05 Bq/cm3). The compact, fully contained, plug-and-play Developer Kit is powered and controlled by a USB connected to a PC or laptop. The unit contains a SrI2(Eu) scintillator, an optically coupled Hamamatsu photomultiplier tube, high voltage supply, digital multi-channel analyzer, and browser-based graphical user interface. The integrated electronics are calibrated for optimal spectroscopic performance. The field-deployable design can be used as a stand-alone spectrometer, or as an OEM building block. For more information, including a full .pdf brochure, visit their website at, or email

The unit will be demonstrated at these upcoming exhibitions:

We are excited to offer an integrated solution for our strontium iodide product line. We anticipate it will truly help our customers accelerate their own development. Dr. Shariar Motakef, President, CapeSym, Inc.
