RAD-SURE™ blood irradiation indicators

Chemistry: Radiochromic Film

look for the NOT

Rad-Sure is a blood irradiation indicator that provides positive visual verification of irradiation at the minimum specified dose. Rad-Sure is available in two types: Gamma and X-Ray. Gamma is compatible with Cesium-137 or Cobalt-60 radiation sources and X-Ray is compatible with x-ray irradiators that utilize x-rays generated from 160kVp sources that are filtered through 0.38 mm of copper, or 150kVp sources that are filtered through 1 mm of aluminum. Manufactured from Gafchromic™ film, the world’s highest resolution dosimeter, Rad-Sure is the standard for blood irradiation indicators for over 25 years.

When attached to blood products, Rad-Sure blood irradiation indicators show whether the blood products have been irradiated. Before a blood product and its attached indicator are irradiated, the indicator reads “NOT IRRADIATED”. After the blood product and its attached indicator are irradiated, the word “NOT” is obscured and the indicator reads “IRRADIATED”.
