FAQs
How do you use a Luxel+ whole body dosimetry badge

LANDAUER sends Luxel+ whole body dosimeters individually wrapped with a label noting where to wear. Snap the dosimeter into the holder and begin to wear on the date noted or as soon as possible. Dosimeters should be worn during working hours to record occupational exposure (do not wear dosimeters during non-working hours or when undergoing diagnostic or medical procedures where exposures would not be part of your occupational exposure history).

At the end of the wear period, snap the used Luxel+ dosimeter out of the holder and replace it with the dosimeter for the new wear period. Return the used dosimeter along with the control dosimeter of the same wear date to LANDAUER to process for exposure.

NOTE: Don’t use dosimeters in the original cellophane packaging as those would be recorded as unused (excluding control dosimeters).

Who should wear a dosimeter badge, what type and how often exchanged?

Requirements vary from state to state. Your state radiation safety office is the best source of information about who should be wearing radiation badges/dosimeters, what type, and how often you should exchange your dosimeters.

To find specific state information about radiation regulation status, legislation, contact information, State Agreement, and program reviews, go to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission website, found here. In addition, most state radiation control agencies have web sites and are listed here.

What is an exchange frequency? What is the recommended frequency?

An exchange frequency is how often dosimeters are shipped and are decided based on your office’s needs. Exchange frequencies from one week up to one year are available dependent on type of dosimetry service. Service rates vary with exchange frequency.

What is inside Luxel+, and how does it work?

Luxel+ contains a thin strip of specially formulated aluminum oxide crystalline material within a four-element filter pack that is heat sealed within a laminated, light-tight paper wrapper. All of these components are radio-frequency sealed inside tamper-proof plastic to eliminate possible mishandling, light leakage or lost detection elements.

The Luxel+ dosimeter measures radiation exposure due to X, gamma and beta radiation with optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) technology. The OSL radiation detector inside the Luxel+ dosimeter is the thin strip of specially formulated aluminum oxide (Al2O3) crystalline material.

The luminescence measured during analysis is applied to a dose algorithm that relies on the response ratios between different filter positions within the dosimeter to discriminate between beta and photon (X and gamma) radiation fields to determine exposure results. Dose equivalents arising from exposures to photons (X or gamma rays) will have a deep, lens of eye and shallow value reported. Depending on the energy of the X or gamma rays, these values may or may not be equal. Beta exposures are reported only as a shallow dose equivalent.

What is and how do I use a control badge / dosimeter?

A separate dosimeter known and labeled as a control dosimeter is included with each dosimeter shipment to monitor radiation received in transit or storage. When the dosimeters are returned to LANDAUER for processing and analysis, the control dosimeter exposure is subtracted from each individual dosimeter exposure in the shipment to separate the occupational dose from the background exposure.

It is very important that the control dosimeter(s) assigned to a shipment accompany that shipment in transit both from and to LANDAUER. And, if you are returning dosimeters that shipped separately from the regular shipment for the wear date, include any control dosimeters that accompanied those shipments.

Do not use the control dosimeter for any other purpose! Store control dosimeters away from radiation with dosimeters of the same type and wear date when not in use (do not store dosimeters near a radioactive source or in an X-ray room).

How long does it take to receive an exposure report?

At the end of each wear period, dosimeters returned to our laboratory for processing are analyzed. You can access a dosimetry report via myLDR.com, usually available within five working days from the receipt of the dosimeters. Emergency processing with an expedited report is available for dosimeters suspected of receiving overexposure.

Should an employee who works at two facilities have two separate dosimeter badges?

Yes, the employee should have a separate badge at each location. This will identify which facility the employee was working if dose is received.

Do you provide specific dosimetry badging for a pregnant radiation worker?

Yes, once an employee declares her pregnancy, LANDAUER can provide a “fetal” badge that notes body location to be worn in addition to her whole body badge. The mother's exposure appears as usual on the standard dosimetry report plus appears again with the fetal exposure results on an additional page of the dosimetry report. The estimated deep dose from conception to declaration appears if supplied to LANDAUER along with the total declaration to current deep dose.

If the fetal badge volume requires a more comprehensive approach, LANDAUER has a monthly Fetal Monitor Report. This summary report displays estimated dose from conception to declaration, rolling exposure history by month for both mother and child and accumulated fetal totals for the gestation period.

The Fetal Monitor Report involves a charge in addition to your basic service.
