SELECTED CALIBRATION NUMBER UPDATE
Based on review of the most recent referenced NIST publications and metrology data, Capintec is updating the following nominal dose calibrator calibration numbers. Note that the default values provided are for the NIST SRM geometry. The SRM is approximately 5 ml of solution in a flame sealed glass ampoule, with 0.6 mm wall thickness. The ampoule geometry provides a good approximation for both vials and syringes for most isotopes. The Ge-68 mock syringe data in the NIST publication is listed below for the convenience of our users.

12 atm CRC-PC Smart Chamber HL, CRC 55tR, CRC 55tW, CRC 25R, and CRC 15R
Isotope Geometry OLD CAL # NEW CAL # VARIANCE
F-18 SRM ampoule 472 450 4.1%
Ga-68 SRM ampoule 416 442 -5.1%
Ga-68 syringe** 447
Ba-133 SRM ampoule 591 626 -4.7%
Cs-137 SRM ampoule 220 227 -2.2%
** 3 ml of epoxy fill in mock Ge 68 6 ml syringe
