Capintec knows how important radiation safety is to your department, and 511 keV nuclides make achieving this goal even more challenging.
The Capintec Spring Armed Dose Drawing Station was designed to help you meet the ALARA requirements of your department. With its proprietary spring arm design and exceptional shielding, the Spring Armed Dose Drawing Station is a fast and safety conscious way of handling your PET nuclides.
The Four Key Features
The Spring Arm
The Spring Armed Dose Drawing Station’s proprietary spring arm design allows for quick and near effortless positioning of the 35 lb. (16 kg) vial shield. With minimal exertion and minimal time the vial shield can be raised, lowered and/or inverted.
The 511 Vial Shield
There are two components to the vial shield. First is the inner T-vial shield, which is made of tungsten and provides a 1″ (25.4 mm) lead equivalence. Second is the outer shield, which has 1″ (25.4 mm) thick walls of epoxy-coated lead.
The Dose Drawing Syringe Shield
Included with the Spring Armed Dose Drawing Station is a Dose Drawing Syringe Shield in 5, 10 or 20 cc sizes. The syringe shield has a tungsten flange that provides maximum protection and locks onto the 511 vial shield with a twist of the wrist.
The 511 “L” Block Body Shield
Inside of the steel covering of the body shield lie interlocking 2 3/8″ (6 cm) lead bricks. Mounted at a 20 degree angle on top of the steel cover is an 8″ x 8″ x 4″ (51 x 51 x 25 cm) High Density lead glass view port.
