This Beta Syringe Shield reduces hand exposure from syringes containing beta-emitting radiopharmaceuticals such as those used in Theranostics and Therapeutics. The barrel of the syringe shield is constructed of clear plastic, which attenuates Beta emission. The .062” thick embedded lead lining attenuates Gamma emission and errant bremsstrahlung. The viewing window provides clear visibility when drawing and administering a dose. A thumbscrew holds syringes firmly in place.
The Beta Syringe Shields accommodate the standard sized 1 cc, 10 cc and 20 cc syringes.
