(b) Background counting times and average background counts;
(c) Sample counting times;
(d) Instrument efficiency and calculation of efficiency determination;
(e) Instrument's lower limit of detection using the sample counting time and the isotope and activity of calibration standards;
(f) Sample calculation converting counting results into activity or activity per unit time, if applicable; and
(g) Frequency of instrument calibration.
(3) If portable radiation survey instruments are used to determine compliance with the contamination control action levels described in this part, the instruments shall be operable and calibrated as provided in Rule 64E-5.314, F.A.C.
