Instadose Dosimetry Services (X-ray badges)

The Instadose® family of dosimeters is transforming the way facilities manage their radiation monitoring programs. Now immediate dose reads can be captured by smart phones, tablets, or internet enabled computers. With Instadose dosimeters in your facility you can increase dosimetry compliance and lower dose for high risk employees with ease.

Instadose Dosimeter

The Instadose® dosimeter is a small, rugged dosimeter based on proprietary direct ion storage technology.

This breakthrough technology provides radiation workers with a precise measurement of radiation dose and includes accurate long-term exposure tracking. A built-in memory chip stores each user's identity via an embedded unique serial code that is assigned to the user.

Traditional Dosimetry Services

Radiation Badge Services and Specialty Dosimeters for a Variety of Applications

Radiation monitoring services are the foundation of any radiation safety program. In facilities where individuals are exposed to radiation as part of their job they are required to wear a radiation dosimeter. These dosimeters ensure that radiation dose is kept below legal limits and allows the radiation safety officer on site to manage each person's dose to keep it as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA). 

Mirion's comprehensive dosimetry service program includes:

  • Consulting and integration services by an experienced team of experts in the field of radiation dosimetry. Mirion's team will help you design a radiation monitoring program based around your business.
  • TLD DosimetersRing DosimetersAPex Dosimeters, or other speciality dosimeters for your personnel
  • Instant online access to reports and historical records
  • Customized radiation exposure reports
  • 24/7 access to dosimetry experts and customer service representatives
     

Every radiation safety program has its own unique needs. Here are some additional resources to help you choose the best options for your program.

MEDICAL / HOSPITAL / UNIVERSITY FACILITIES

If you have X-ray or diagnostic equipment in your office, varying levels of radiation exposure risks may exist. Mirion Technologies Dosimetry Services Division can ensure that you assess risk levels appropriately and that the proper dosimetry monitoring service is implemented in a cost-efficient manner.

Dosimeters (x-ray badges) recommended include:

  • Genesis Thermoluminescent (TLD) Dosimeters - respond accurately to beta, gamma, X-ray and neutron radiations. The Genesis TLD dosimeter allows for the reporting of deep, lens of eye and shallow doses.

  • Ring Dosimeters - perfect for those who handle radioisotopes or perform interventional radiographic procedures. For low or high energy beta, X-ray or gamma radiation monitoring of hands and fingers.

  • Instadose Line of Dosimeters - provides immediate dose readings by using any internet enabled computer and can be read up to a cumulative dose of 12 rem.

  • APex Dosimeters - slim profile and lightweight makes this badge easy to wear. As with other OSL technologies APex dosimeters can be re-read multiple times.

 

DENTAL / VETERINARY OFFICES

Even low levels of ionizing radiation from x-ray machines could represent a potential health hazard over time. Though exposure may be minimal on a daily basis, continual monitoring is necessary to ensure the ongoing health of your employees.

Recommended dosimeters (x-ray badges) include:

 

NATIONAL LABS

The highly important work performed at national laboratories often encompasses potentially high exposure to ionizing radiation. Scientists and research assistants working directly in these environments need to be aware of exposure levels on a regular basis. National laboratories must adhere to strict guidelines of operation as well as state and federal mandates.

We can help you determine the optimal dosimetry program for your environment and customize programs by department if necessary.

Dosimeters (x-ray badges) recommended include:

 

NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

With service programs tailored specifically to your needs and backed by solid technical expertise, you can depend on us to respond to the unique requirements of nuclear power facilities. Your facility can also have access to the convenience of BadgeTrak, a proprietary customer software program that automates the dosimeter management process and ensures timely and efficient management for dosimeter processing.

Radiation monitoring products recommended include:

 

HOMELAND SECURITY, STATE AND FEDERAL AGENCIES 

Homeland security has become a top priority in recent years to assure the safety of individuals around the world. If asked to perform duties in an environment where radiation may be present, assessing exposure levels is crucial and reporting on a regular basis a necessity.

Many State, Federal, and Military agencies work in environments that monitor radiation programs or environments as well as carry the responsibility for crisis management in the event of an emergency. Ensuring public health, safety, and the integrity of our environment is the primary concern of these government organizations and safety personnel.

We understand how critical it is that all personnel be protected to reduce or avoid short-term, or acute, exposure to radiation.
