Product Description

MP Bio's thermoluminescent (TLD-XBGN) dosimeter badges measure ionizing radiation and can be used to determine accurate radiation exposure in the workplace. The badge contains four separate thermoluminescent phosphors for calculating tissue equivalence and determining actual doses of radiation. When the phosphors are heated, previously absorbed energy from ionizing radiation exposure is re-emitted in the form of light. The light output is measured, and the dose is calculated. A report is published with a minimal reportable dose of 10mrem.

Application Notes

Annual occupational dose limits are established for different parts of the body. The whole body refers to the head and trunk of the body, including the arms above the elbows, the legs above the knees, and the reproductive organs. The skin refers to the skin anywhere on the body. The extremities refer to the arms below the elbow and legs below the knees. (All doses are in units of millirems (mrem) of dose that may be received in a calendar year) 5,000 mrem - Whole Body (Deep Dose Equivalent or DDE) 15,000 mrem - Lens of the Eye (Eye Dose Equivalent or LDE) 50,000 mrem - Skin (Shallow Dose Equivalent or SDE) 50,000 mrem - Extremities (Shallow Dose Equivalent or SDE) 500 mrem - Fetus of a Declared Pregnant Radiation Worker (for the entire pregnancy) Dose Limits for Minors 10% of adult limits When the badge is worn on the body, a deep, shallow and eye dose will be reported. Deep dose is the measurement of external exposure received at a tissue depth of 1.0 centimeter. Shallow dose is the measurement of external exposure received at a tissue depth of 0.007 centimeters. Dose to the lens of the eye is the measurement of exposure received at a tissue depth of 0.3 centimeters.

Usage Statement

- Badges should be worn at the body location indicated on the dosimeter label.
- Badges should never be cut, covered, blocked, or written on.
- When a protective garment is worn, the badge should be worn at the collar and outside the protective garment.
- Badges should never be shared between individuals or locations.
- Badges should always be worn when there is a potential for occupational exposure to ionizing radiation.
- Badges not in use should be stored in an area without radiation to prevent exposure and ensure accurate dose reporting.

Key Applications

Radiation monitoring; accredited dose monitoring program; thermoluminescent dosimeter; dose reporting
