The Pro-Tec® III Syringe Shield is designed to reduce hand exposure in clinicians preparing and administering radiopharmaceuticals. With its lightweight, sleek design, this syringe shield is easy to use.
The barrel of the shield is constructed of 2 mm thick tungsten that will reduce radiation exposure from Tc-99m by more than 99% attenuation for Tc-99 tested with TLD chips. A 5.05 density lead glass window provides protection and optimal visibility. A white reflective surface on the shield interior improves viewing of the syringe’s markings and fluid content. A bevel around the lead glass helps protect it from scratching or breaking.
The quick release, Safe-T-Lock is designed to facilitate minimal handling, thereby reducing hand exposure. Upon insertion, the Safe-T-Lock grips and securely locks the syringe into place. Disposing of used syringes is easy; invert the syringe shield over a sharps container, press the release button and the syringe freely disengages.
Pro-Tec® III Syringe Shields accommodate the standard sized 1 cc, 3 cc, 5 cc and 10 cc syringes
