The SENTINEL Ir-192 radioisotope sources are available up to 240 Ci (8.88 TBq) activity. Custom activities may be ordered to meet your specific application needs.
QSA Global, Inc.’s SENTINEL Ir-192 radioisotope sources are double-encapsulated and laser welded for superior quality and safety. Natural and enriched Iridium-192 sources are constructed using iridium metal discs or pellets of uniform size in a welded stainless steel capsule. Utilizing enriched Ir-192 produces smaller focal sizes for optimum image quality.
SENTINEL Ir-192 is designated for use within the steel thickness range of 0.39 in-3.54 in (10 mm-90 mm) per ISO 5579:2013
Transportation, Support, & Disposition
QSA Global, Inc. distributes radioisotope sources worldwide by utilizing the industry’s largest fleet of source changers.
