Parallel Plate Chambers

Exradin Parallel Plate Chambers ensure precision in depth-dose measurements by providing uniform field lines even at low energies.

The Exradin Advantage

  • Exceptionally wide guard rings exceed 3mm widths recommended in TG-39.
  • Rigid stem allows accurate positioning of chamber.
  • Chamber vents through a flexible tube sealed to the chamber body, ideal for use in water or plastic phantoms.


Exradin A10 Ion Chamber

The A10 chamber provides excellent spatial resolution for dose distribution measurements in a water phantom. An acrylic waterproof cap is included with this chamber for use in TG-51 electron beam protocols.
