Inquire About this Product

Very energetic beta particles can penetrate up to one-half inch through skin and into the body but can be shielded with less than an inch of material. Overexposing the hands to beta radiation during diagnostic and therapeutic processes can be prevented with products developed as shielding between technician and vial.

Sirona Complete Care carries the Y-90 Lucite ® Vial Shield, a go-to transparent vial shielding used in the speciality nuclear medicine field of Theranostics. Combining drug therapeutics and diagnostics in a single platform using nanomaterials, Theranostics uses two radioactive agents and can offer a more targeted and individualized therapy.

Theranostics also enhances drug efficacy, improves treatment response monitoring, and is important in shifting the “one medicine fits all” for a disease diagnosis and toward medicines tailored for the make-up of the individual.
