Blood Irradiators

Absorbed Dose in Blood Irradiators Measured by Mailed Dosimeters

Thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLD) are available by mail to check the absorbed dose to the blood in irradiators used by blood banks.  Packets of dosimeters are supplied; these can be placed at various locations to monitor the range of dose throughout the canister for a typical irradiation.  These measurements are an independent check of the calibration of the blood irradiator as provided by the manufacturer.
