Emergency Preparedness

Prepare for the worst-case scenario and reinforce your radiation emergency response program
In the case of a radiological or nuclear event, accurate and timely radiation monitoring is critical to manage
Badge(1) likely to be incurred by emergency responders, members of the public, and caregivers. LANDAUER’s InLight® dosimetry products and services offer a proven solution that can allow every microstarresponder to wear a personal occupational dosimeter, and capture individual radiation exposure measurements (for legal documentation). InLight dosimeters can be read on the microStar® Reader®, providing convenience, portability, onsite reading capability and data accuracy to any organization with the responsibility to act in a radiological emergency.

LANDAUER’s optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) technology and service are quickly becoming the industry standard for emergency radiation measurements. In fact, more than 80% of healthcare facilities in the U.S. have trusted OSL for their occupational radiation monitoring for more than 12 years. OSL technology is designed to perform under environmentally challenging conditions where other systems may fail, such as rain or heat, making it the ideal solution for the unpredictability of emergency response scenarios.

FirefightersLANDAUER’s OSL technology provides a common platform that allows emergency response programs to intersect and support one another. OSL dosimetry badges feature bar code technology for dosimeter assignment to individual team members, which enables tracking of responders across multiple agencies and organizations. These badges can be read right onsite, and can also be re-read multiple times, allowing future analysis of radiation dose data to assess the overall impact of an event. In addition, LANDAUER’s emergency response solution can easily scale up in scope, allowing it to be shared across a large response network. LANDAUER can assist you in assembling a single central processing laboratory that can be leveraged by your entire network, enabling use by multiple entities. By adopting the OSL dosimetry platform, you can operate effectively as an independent response team, but could also seamlessly join a larger, growing regional and national network of responders, should the need arise.
