Designed for vials containing liquid radioisotopes, the Tungsten Vial Shield features a removable screw top with a magnetic cap. Speed of handling reduces exposure. Another design feature is the holding ring which fits comfortably in the hand or into a dispensing stand. The magnetic cap holds the lid in place even when inverted on the stand.

Machined with 0.2″ thick tungsten, the vial shield accommodates most 10 ml vials.
