This study presents test measurements on a Lexsyg luminescence reader, acquired by the Giessen luminescence group. The reader is of the tupe Standard, hence designed for routine determination of palaeodoses using quartz of K-feldspars. The tests include measurements of the stimulation powers, preheat temperatures, OSL- and TL-curves, as well as dose recovery tests and calibration measurements using highly sensitised calibration quartz. A comparison of De values determined using a Lexsyg reader with single grain De-values, which have been previously obtained on a Risø reader, is also presented. The results imply that the Lexsyg reader is a highly reliable measurement device with high reproducibility, yielding instrumental uncertainties of around 0.3%
