Your dosemeters arrive in boxes or envelopes together with a packing list, and at least one control dosemeter. You receive them approximately one week before the beginning of the next wear period.
Personal identification, including account number, participant number, begin wear date and unique serial numbers are all printed on the reverse side of Luxel+ dosemeters and laser etched on to our extremity SATURN rings and VISION lens of eye dosemeters.
All routine shipments are sent to a central location or can be sent to multiple sites (series) at
the same address or to different addresses.
Series within accounts are segregated on dosimetry reports, and the site name appears on the dosemeter.
> LUXEL+ Control
> SATURN Control
> VISION Control
Control dosemeters accompany each shipment to monitor the background radiation exposure of the dosemeters during transit and storage.
The dose received by the control dosemeter is subtracted from the participants’ dosemeters. They should not be used for any other purpose.
If you have any difficulty returning all of the dosemeters from the wear period in one shipment, LANDAUER can supply extra controls with your account at no extra charge.
To identify your control dosemeters:
- LUXEL+: "CONTROL" is writen,
- VISION and SATURN: control dosemeters are indicated by red body, yellow cap and “CONTROL” on the cap.
