Mayabeque, Cuba_ The Center for Protection and Hygiene of the Radiations and Isotopes, both in the province of Mayabeque, bid farewell to 2017 with their integration into the Analytical Laboratories for the Measurement of Environmental Radioactivity (ALMERA), of the International Organization of Atomic Energy (IAEA). 

In 2017, the exercise consisted in the analysis of three samples containing gamma emitting radionuclides, and more than 70 laboratories from several countries intervened in it.

Its results are of vital importance for the center, in order to maintain the accreditation of the Gamma Spectrometry test by the National Accreditation Body of the Republic of Cuba.

In addition, they demonstrated that their Environmental Testing Laboratory has acceptable accuracy and veracity.

The fact of maintaining the Gamma Spectrometry as an accredited test constitutes a strength and guarantee, due to its application in the radiological monitoring of the environment and in scientific-technical projects and services related to the quantification of natural and anthropogenic radionuclide emitters.

The creation of ALMERA, is a cooperative action of analytical laboratories at world-wide level integrated by 156 facilities of 85 countries.
