Portable survey instruments are required for laboratories using medium-to-high-energy radionuclides. The University license requires that instruments be calibrated at least annually. The Radiation Safety Office has the capability to perform calibrations. Instruments are tracked using a database. When due for calibration, they will be picked up from the laboratory, calibrated, and returned within a reasonable time. Loaner instruments may be provided for continuous use.
Should an instrument require repairs, the RSO will estimate the costs and contact the Authorized User for authorization to proceed with repairs.
