A clean sweep
Back-related injuries are not uncommon in healthcare workers who have to regularly bend and crouch as they sweep for gamma contamination. The Radhound Mini F is designed to mitigate this when performing laborious tasks such as monitoring floors and patient toilets.
Featuring a 1 metre carbon fibre rod with the detector mounted on the end, the Mini F has the same intuitive operation and functionality as that of the standard model. Users can measure tight and low areas from a standing position, whilst reducing exposure. It is lightweight and well balanced, ensuring that the system can be used comfortably for long periods of time.
And when finished, the Radhound Mini F can be stored tidily in its wall-mount.
- Health physics for contamination monitoring on surfaces, clothing, and objects, etc.
- Nuclear Medicine departments, suitable for e.g. Tc-99m, I-125, I-131, F-18.
- Radiological survey work and laboratory use.
- Veterinary clinics focused on equine scintigraphy.
Introducing SiPM detectors
The Radhound Mini features an integrated NaI(TI) Silicon Photomultiplier (SiPM) detector. SiPMs are solid-state devices making them resistant to shock and vibrations that may occur because of extensive handling by users. They are commonly used in radiation detection and medical imaging systems.
Each SiPM detector has thousands of micron-sized avalanche photodiodes (APD) arranged in a custom-made array for optimal optical coupling with the Radhound Mini’s scintillation crystal. This reduces the monitor’s size and weight while maintaining counting efficiency.
Energy window of interest
The energy window of interest can be open or set to low, medium, or high to optimize sensitivity for lower energy gamma radiation or higher energy PET isotopes.
Smart averaging software
Smart averaging software ensures a steady display that can be read with confidence, providing a quick response to ensure no contamination has been missed.
Adjustable alarm levels
Fully adjustable alarm levels and optional sounds.
Integrator function available for surveying options.
Resistant to shock and vibrations caused by extensive handling thanks to solid-state technology.
Clear backlit LCD display with count rate displayed in large clear numbers and a bar scale underneath.
Micro-USB connection to charge NiMH AA-cell batteries, which can be easily swapped if needed.
Weighs just 610 g.
Wall-mount for storage
The monitor can be stored in its wall-mount and plugged in to the charger to ensure it is ready for its next use.
