From UMASS Lowell Web site:

Eberline Model HP-210 Pancake G-M

The Model HP-210 series hand probes provide a sensitive beta detector featuring a “Pancake”GM tube with a thin mica window.  The open window, which is protected by an etched stainless steel screen, permits useful beta sensitivities down to 40 keV. The detector is alpha sensitive (above 3 MeV).The HP-210 is designed for contamination surveys on personnel, table tops, floors, equipment, etc.  The HP-210T, with a high density tungsten shield, permits relatively low-level beta monitoring in a gamma background.  Also available is the HP-210L with a lead shield which has the same specifications as the tungsten shield.  When low-level beta monitoring is required in a low background area, the HP-210AL with an aluminum housing maybe used.

Indicated Use: Alpha beta gamma survey; Frisking
Detector: Pancake type halogen quenched G-M

*Efficiencies listed as percentage of 4π emission rate, from a 2” diameter circular area of a 10cm2 square source for Cs-137 and Co-60 sources.  Efficiencies listed as percentage of 4π emission rate, from a 1.75 diameter source for other isotopes.  Open area of the etched stainless steel screen is 79%.
