Ophthalmic applicators

A calibration service for ophthalmic applicators has been developed by NPL's Radiation Dosimetry team.

  • Calibration of Ru-106 and Sr-90 curved and planar applicators.
  • Service is available on demand.
  • Turnaround time approximately two weeks.
  • Calibration in terms of absorbed doserate to water, normally at 0 mm and 2 mm depth.
  • Uncertainty of calibration is estimated to be ± 7 % (k=2)
