The Unit Dose Pig is designed to reduce exposure from Beta emitting radiopharmaceuticals, such as the Y-90 component of a Zevalin™ treatment. The barrel of the pig is constructed of .09" thick (2.3 mm) lead and .36" (9.1 mm) acrylic that attenuates beta emissions and errant Bremsstrahlung. The lead and acrylic are encased in a durable Lexan.
The pig accommodates a 10 cc B-D syringe filled to 9 cc. The pig fits into the Zevalin shipping container and most Ammo cans.
