700 MHz micro-cryocoil II

The equipment is now due for deliver in February and we hope to be up and running shortly after this date. Please do not hesitate to contact me on (matt.crump@bristol.ac.uk) if you wish to access this facility. I will post specs in due course to give some idea of the sensitivity but in tests we have been able to detect traces of plasticiser as low as 30 nanograms in 1000 scans (about 20 minutes) at 600 MHz. We would therefore anticipate a 40% timesaving at 700 MHz 0r the ability to detect down to the 10 nanogram level in a few hours.
