Relative Dose Ranges From Ionizing Radiation



Thomas J. Bruno


It is important to place in perspective the relative ionizing radiation dose acquired in common laboratory settings. The most commonly encountered source is a 63Ni source used in gas chromatographic electron captures detectors and in ion mobility spectrometers. In both instruments, the source is sealed and has a radioactivity of 15 mCi.
