US testing of wood

Hi,
Can anybody tell me where I can purchase US testing
equipment for in situ nondestructive evaluation of
wooden structural elements in buildings?
I'd like to know if low frequency transducers with
conical heads specially designed for use on wood,
like the type mentioned in the paper by Sandoz
(10th International Symp on NDT of Wood, Lausanne,
1996) are available in the market.
Any information on US NDT of wooden structures
and anyone interested in sharing experience on the
subject is also welcome.
Best regards,
Nihan

Re: US testing of wood
Dear Sir,
We are selling a commercial equipment which could be used for the wood testing.
The CT-3 Concrete/Material Tester; it is a handheld, battery powered tester working in about 40 kHz to 4 MHz frequency range, up to 600 V output. It displays the TOF between the probes. Unit works with the variety of custom probes including the conical head probes. The unit is manufactured by Unipan.
Please contact me for more details.
Regards,
