    One of the most valuable and accurate ways of measuring and evaluating contamination removal is through the use of radioisotopes. The process entails: (1) incorporation of a radioisotope into the contaminant to be studied; (2) application of the “tagged” contaminant to the substrate to be studied; (3) measurement of the amount of contaminant on the substrate; (4) subjecting the substrate to the industrial cleaning process under surveillance; and (5) measurement of the amount of contamination remaining on the substrate.
