This test method covers the determination of the concentration of technetium-99 in urine using inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). This test method can be used to support uranium enrichment and reclamation facility bioassay programs.
The minimum detectable concentration for this test method, using a quadrupole ICP-MS, is approximately 1.0 ng/L (0.62 Bq/L).
