Complete USP <797/825> Solution

Expanding use of high-energy isotopes combined with more rigorous regulations have made concerns of safety in nuclear medicine practice greater than ever. SWE custom shielding solutions fill the gap for essential radio-protection during the handling of high-energy isotopes.

Vial shields provide a complete USP <797/825> compliant solution for in-house hot-lab compounding, extending radiopharmacy functions to the hospital setting.

Continuum of Safety

T-Line Shields are designed to offer ALARA protection for SPECT radiopharmacy applications. The vial shield provides a continuum of radiation safety during radiopharmacy vial compounding and dose dispensing. Integrated injection port reduces hand exposure and targets needle-to-septum “sweet spot” to prevent coring. Septum protection offered by injection port supports USP <825> compliance. Ergonomic design and weight provide optimal handling for multi-dose dispensing in SPECT nuclear medicine. Magnetic cover allows for one-handed manipulation. Virtually unbreakable, SWE Tc-99m vial shields provide a complete USP <797/825> compliant solution for SPECT compounding.

Available in 2 sizes to accommodate commonly used vials: 10 ml, and 30 ml (compatible with commercially available 30 ml vial kits, such as Tetrofosmin).
