CRC – 77tHR Dose Calibrator

High-activity measurements for isotope production environments.

Inquire About this Product

The CRC-77tHR calibrator’s performance and reliability have been designed to meet the unique and demanding needs of the isotope manufacturing and radiopharmaceutical production environments.

The software is designed for rapid repeatable measurement functions often required in production, and includes a fully automated Quality Assurance Program. Hardware is carefully designed to minimize the impact of high radiation fields upon electronics. A touch screen user interface provides a user friendly and efficient workflow.

Some features include a high activity range of over 400 Curies for Tc-99m, USB/PC communications, and pre-defined communication protocols for fast and easy system interface.

We offer a full line of related products to safely use the CRC-77tHR calibrator within your hot cell or hood environment.
