A radioanalytical method (based on separation using UTEVA columns and ICP-MS measurement) has been used for determination of 93Zr in 37 nuclear power plant samples. As 93Nb might affect the detection of 93Zr, Monte Carlo activation model was used to calculate the expected 93Zr/natZr mass ratio, which was compared to measured ones. It was found, that a decontamination factor of 103 is sufficient to get a measurement uncertainty of less than 10%.
