This savings is reduced if you purchase the 770 beta transfer mechanism, which reduces greatly the increased dark count that results from the close proximity of the beta source to the PMT when the irradiator is in place on the TL reader system.
In some cases, where equipment is available elsewhere, such as radiation sources, it may be possible to begin dating with only the TL reader, software, computer, and atmosphere control (vacuum pump and purge gas supply).
The choice of base system will depend largely on whether you will be doing any substantial amount of TL measurement, where an evacuable system is, depending on sample materials, either optional or necessary.

While the most versatile of our systems, the 1100, can accomplish both TL and OSL measurements very well, the new 2200 high capacity OSL system is the better choice where the primary technique is OSL, and especially where TL capability already exists in the lab.
The 1150 high capacity TL system is designed for additive dose geological measurement where the irradiations are external; now that single aliquot OSL techniques that require multiple irradiations are popular, this is not the best choice.This avoids the problem of determining the fraction of unbleachable TL signal, since the unbleachable population is never detected, and makes life considerable simpler, especially for young and partially bleached sediments.Because of this, OSL dating has now almost completely supplanted TL, and there is little use for TL in sediment dating except in some techniques like single aliquot regenerative, where sensitivity changes may be monitored by recording low temperature TL during the course of ramping up to a preheat temperature.) is perfectly adequate to run the DOS version of TLAPPLIC, a minimum of a Pentium II at 200 MHz is preferred since it most likely will serve other purposes in the lab as well, and is required for First Light.A two-stage regulator (for precise control) is much preferred over the somewhat less expensive single stage variety, and a flowmeter is needed to set and monitor the purge gas flow rate (approximately 2-4 liters/minute).In the present work, some alluvial sediments sampled in Upper Pleistocene fluvial terraces of the Yellow River system (China) permit us to test the application of another extrapolation function (linear exponential) recently proposed for Lower Pleistocene sediments.
