Mirion Capintec offers sources for Nuclear Medicine facilities

Cobalt-57 Flood Phantom

Mirion offers various, circular and rectangular flood phantoms for standard, LFOV, Dual and Triple Head Cameras. 

Perflexion Flood Source

Perflexion flood source eliminates bulk and weight with its unique tungsten composite shield. Together with the superior uniformity, low impurities and excellent durability, Perflexion makes every other source obsolete.

Reference Standards

Guaranteed Accuracy, Highest Quality Lowest Cost in Industry

Each “E”-vial reference source comes with a certificate of radio-activity calibration that guarantees accuracy within 5%. The critical nature of NRC and agreement state regulations for dose calibrator QC demand the most accurate reference sources available.

Reference sources can be purchased individually, or in cost-effective sets of three or four. Sets come in various combinations of radionuclide sources to fit your needs. An 18 month day to day decay calender is available to eliminate calculations.

Markers and Rulers

Spot Markers

Our Spot Markers are 1″ in diameter by 0.25″ and made of clear acrylic. The activity is supplied as a nominal value of ±15%. NIST traceable calibrations with accuracies of ±5% are available. A wooden storage box is also available (upon request).

“L” and “R” Spot Markers

In order to better mark the orientation of the patient, these spot markers containing 100 µCi of Co-57 identify the Left side and/or the Right side of the patient. The “L” and “R” are clearly identified on the patients film.

Rigid Ruler

The Capintec Rigid Ruler is a plastic tube 0.197″ (5.0 mm) in diameter, containing 15 sequential 0.394″ (10.0 mm) sections of Co-57 and inactive lead. The overall length of the ruler is 6.7″ (17 cm) with an active length of 5.91″ (15.0 cm). Contained activity is supplied as a nominal value ±15%. The standard Capintec Rigid Ruler contains 140 µCi (0.74 MBq) of Co-57. Other activities are available upon request.

Penpoint Markers

The Penpoint Marker is used in tracing the outlines of anatomical features on a patient. The trace appears almost instantly on the gamma camera display. Capintec’s Penpoint Markers contain 100 µCi of Co-57 in a bead at the end of an anodized aluminum rod. The pen-shaped rod screws into a brass cap which shields the active point.

Flexible Marker

Flexible Markers are useful in outlining anatomical parts or borders of organs on patients. Co-57 is uniformly dispersed in an epoxy matrix and contained in a 2.4 mm flexible plastic tube. The overall and active length of the marker is 19.7″ (50 cm).

Flexible Rulers

The Capintec Flexible Ruler is a plastic tube 0.19″ (4.8 mm) in diameter, containing 45 sequential 0.394″ (10.0 mm) sections of Co-57 and inactive lead. The overall length of the ruler is 18.5″ (47 cm), with an active length of 17.7″ (45 cm). Contained activity is supplied as a nominal value ±15%. The standard Capintec Flexible Ruler contains 20 µCi (0.74 MBq) of Co-57. Other activities are available upon request.

Disc Source

For checking performance of GM tubes and NaI detectors

Disk Sources are mainly used for checking the performance of GM tubes and NaI detectors. The disks measure 1″ (25.4 mm) by 0.25″ (6.35 mm) and are manufactured of high-strength plastic. The active diameter of the disk is 0.197″ (5.0 mm) with the active area centered in the disk.

DISK SOURCES ARE 25 mm (0.250″) THICK, NIST TRACEABLE +/-5% GAMMA

Rod Sources

For calibrating well type NaI detectors

Capintec offers a wide variety of *Rod Sources for well counters to satisfy the needs of your department. These sources are used for calibrating well type NaI detectors. They are constructed of high- strength plastic to withstand the rigors of constant use in a busy department. They have a flat base which allows easy positioning in the vertical position required for consistent accuracy (in the counting of) many tests.

Capintec Rod Sources are calibrated as NIST traceable with an accuracy of ± 5% at the 99% confidence level. Each source consists of a lucite rod measuring 12.7 mm (0.5″) x 75 mm (2.95″) as a standard size. The active diameter of the rod source is 0.187″ (4.75 mm).

Cs-137 Check Source for Survey Meters

Manufactured of high-strength plastic

The disks measure 1″ (25.4 mm) by 0.25″ (6.35 mm) and are manufactured of high-strength plastic. The active diameter of the disk is 0.197″ (5.0 mm) with the active area centered in the disk.
