The Gaard Lock™ PET Syringe Shield reduces hand exposure from syringes containing 511 keV radionuclides FDG F-18. The barrel of the shield is constructed of .34" thick (9 mm) tungsten that attenuates FDG F-18 by 88%.
The syringe shield is offered with or without a high density (5.6) flush mounted lead glass window that provides protection and visibility. A white reflective surface on the shield interior improves viewing of the syringe's markings and fluid content.
The syringe shield features a unique flanged locking mechanism that speeds the loading and unloading of the syringe, further reducing hand exposure. Gaard Lock PET Syringe Shields accommodate the standard sized 3 cc, 5 cc and 10 cc syringes. The Gaard Lock PET Syringe Shield fits the Manual Dose Injector.
