FeatherLite™ - The Lightest Flood Source
FeatherLite weighs up to 60% less than other rigid flood sources. FeatherLite is even easier to handle, saving strain on your back. FeatherLite is now available for all popular cameras.
The Eckert and Ziegler Isotope Products (EZIP) Co-57 Flood Source provides a uniform field of radiation for evaluation of Nuclear Medicine gamma camera performance, allowing detection and correction of any camera malfunction prior to diagnostic use. The typical useful life of the Co-57 flood source is approximately 2 years. The Co-57 flood sources are available in a variety of circular and rectangular dimensions, with activities to meet the standards established by the manufacturers of the gamma cameras.
EZIP’s FeatherLite Co-57 flood sources consist of cobalt chloride uni- formly dispersed onto a thin substrate which is then placed in an ABS encapsulation and ultrasonically welded. Perflexion flood sources consist of Co-57 uniformly dispersed in a polyurethane matrix within a flexible coated-fabric capsule.
EZIP’s manufacturing process ensures that Nuclear Medicine customers will receive the highest quali- ty flood source available to perform quality control on gamma cameras.
Flood sources are scanned using a gamma camera. The camera images each flood source for parameters including differential and integral non-uniformity in accordance with ANSI N42.27. Visual checks are per- formed to detect any distortions of the active element and the outside capsule.
A leak test is performed on all sources prior to shipment.
EZIP’s flood sources are manufactured according to the following specifications:
CV ≤ 1.0%
INU ≤ 3.6%
FLOOD SOURCES ARE AVAILABLE WITH AN OPTIONAL CASE. IF A CASE IS NOT REQUESTED, THE FLOOD SOURCE WILL BE SUPPLIED WITH A LEAD LINED CARDBOARD CONTAINER.
