The presence of 89Sr and 90Sr in the biosphere constitutes a biological hazard. There are several analytical methods for the determination of 89Sr and 90Sr. Three analytical methods of various application fields using selective Sr resin for Sr separation and DGA resin for Y
separation and measuring techniques, i.e. liquid scintillation spectrometry and Cerenkov counting are discussed in the paper.
The calculation techniques are compared in the aspects such as trueness and accuracy of the results and the limit of detection.
Uncertainties and detection limits are calculated using the spreadsheet method.
