Iodine and Palladium Source Holders
Number - See Specifications
The most complete line of source holders for calibrating iodine and palladium isotopes
SINGLE LDR SEED SOURCES
The single LDR seed source holder features a 1.2 mm inner diameter tube which positions an individual iodine, palladium, iridium or gold seed at the most sensitive area of the well chamber. The smooth tube allows easy removal of the seed. This source holder can be calibrated for several iodine and palladium isotopes. Only one source holder needs to be purchased for multiple calibrations.
SEED BATCH ASSAY TOOL
The seed batch assay tool is designed to provide multiple seed measurements for up to 500 of the iodine or palladium seeds typically used for prostate cancer treatment. Source holder positions seeds at the most sensitive area of the HDR 1000 Plus Well Chamber.
IBT INTERSTRAND® SOURCES
The IBt InterStrand® source holder is designed for QA measurements of International Brachytherapy InterStrand® source trains. The train consists of ten InterSource® 103Pd seeds or ten InterSource® 125I seeds, with an absorbable suture contained within the open annulus of each seed. The InterStrand® stainless steel shielding container connects to the top of the source holder for easy transfer of the InterStrand® to the source holder for measurement.
IMAGYN ISOSLEEVE™ SOURCES
The Imagyn isosleeve™ source holder is designed for QA measurements of the isosleeve™ prostate brachytherapy needle delivery system from Imagyn Medical Technologies. Each isosleeve™ needle is provided sterile and custom-loaded according to the treatment plan. The polymide sleeve within the isosleeve™ needle contains the seeds and spacers and may be removed from the needle hub so that the seeds can be assayed in the source holder.
PRELOADED NEEDLE SOURCES
Allows calibration and visual verification of a sterilized needle filled with seeds and spacers. A universal luer lock mates to the needle through an adjustable needle hub to needle opening interface offering seamless integration from seeds to the needle. Source trains of one to ten seeds may be verified and calibrated while maintaining sterility.
BARD® EXPRESS™ SEEDING CARTRIDGE
Positions loaded cartridges at the most sensitive position of the HDR 1000 Plus Well chamber, providing a check of the relative activity of the seed held within the cartridge. Source holder accommodates Bard® EXPRESS™ Seeding Cartridges with 2 to 6 seeds and can be gas or steam sterilized.
MICK® CARTRIDGE SOURCES
The Mick® Cartridge source holder provides a consistency QA check of the activity of seeds loaded into a Mick® cartridge. Source holder positions the cartridge for a quick, reproducible measurement. Spring loaded clamp attachment quickly grips cartridge to minimize finger dose. (Mick® Cartridge source holder) can also be used with the Oncura Sterile Convenience Pack.
RAPID STRAND® IODINE SEED SOURCES
The RAPID Strand® iodine seed source holder provides a fast and convenient method to perform a quality assurance measurement of the I-125 RAPID Strand® under sterile conditions. The source holder for the IVB 1000 Well Chamber is constructed to simultaneously measure the ten* 6711 seeds in the strand (the source holder for the HDR 1000 Plus Well Chamber measures 5 seeds at a time.) A correction factor has been determined to calculate the activity.
NUCLETRON SELECTSEED™ SOURCES
Source holder connects to the Nucletron seedSelectron® to center a source in the active area of the HDR 1000 Plus Well Chamber for measurement.
