Thin, lightweight and easy to use, the Pro-Tec II is designed to reduce hand exposure for clinicians during preparation and administration of radiopharmaceuticals.
The barrel of the shield is constructed of 2 mm thick tungsten that will reduce radiation exposure from Tc-99mm by more than 99% attenuation for Tc-99m tested with TLD chips. A 5.05 density lead glass window provides protection and visibility. A white reflective surface on the shield interior improves viewing of the syringe’s markings and fluid content. Polymer encasement and beveled edge around the lead glass helps guard against scratching or breaking. A thumbscrew holds syringes firmly in place. Pro-Tec™ II Syringe Shields accommodate the standard sized 3 cc and 5 cc syringes.
