ARPANSA provides calibration services for instruments used to measure radiation in various commercial, medical and public sector applications.
Medical and Non-Medical X-ray Equipment
ARPANSA tests X-ray equipment for compliance with most protocols such as Australian Standards, ARPANSA codes and safety guides and state requirements. We also evaluate X-ray equipment for safety and effectiveness and assess the attenuation properties of shielding materials (eg lead loaded plastic and glass sheeting, protective aprons, gloves and lead glasses) to Australian Standards requirements. Contact our Diagnostic Imaging & Nuclear Medicine for assistance.
Radon Measuring Equipment
ARPANSA maintains a radon chamber for calibration of radon monitoring equipment used in uranium mines. Contact our Monitoring and Emergency Response Section for assistance.
