"Because of its length, Part II is split between Volumes II and III. Volume II (Chapters 10 through 17 and Appendix F) covers most of the activities performed at radioanalytical laboratories, from field and sampling issues that affect laboratory measurements through waste management. Part II is intended primarily for laboratory personnel. Its eleven chapters provide detailed guidance on field sampling issues that affect laboratory measurements, sample receipt and tracking, sample preparation in the laboratory, sample dissolution, chemical separation techniques, instrumentation for measuring radionuclides, data acquisition, reduction, and reporting, waste management, laboratory quality control, measurement uncertainty, and detection and quantification capability. Seven appendices provide complementary information and additional details on specific topics."
