EZIP’s manufacturing process ensures that Nuclear Medicine customers will receive the highest quality flood source available to perform quality control on gamma cameras.
Flood sources are scanned using a gamma camera. The camera images each flood source for parameters including differential and integral non-uniformity in accordance with ANSI N42.27. Visual checks are performed to detect any distortions of the active element and the outside capsule.
A leak test is performed on all sources prior to shipment.
EZIP’s flood sources are manufactured according to the following specifications:
- Coefficient of Variation (CV) ≤ 1.0%
- Integral Non-Uniformity (INU) ≤ 3.6%
Methods of Calibration
EZIP participates in the Radioactivity Measurement Assurance Program (MAP) conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in cooperation with NIST Radioactivity Measurement Assurance Program, Inc. (NRMAP, Inc.).
Storage Cases Available!
