How the Device Works
The instadose™ dosimeter is a small, rugged dosimeter based on proprietary direct ion storage technology.
This breakthrough technology provides radiation workers with a precise measurement of radiation dose and includes accurate long-term exposure tracking. A built-in memory chip stores each user's identity via an embedded unique serial code that is assigned to the user.
Now users have the flexibility to view their radiation dose at any time from any computer with internet access. Readings via a PC are enabled by a USB compatible detector. Once a user receives instadose they must first register at: www.instadose.com. During the registration process the instadose driver and client are installed on the users’ computer and the device is initialized for use.
When a user wishes to obtain a reading they simply log-in to their account, plug-in instadose to a USB port and click "Read Device". The accumulated dose stored on instadose is processed through a proprietary algorithm. This fully automated transfer of data minimizes the chance of human error and misidentification. Once complete a graphical representation of the current dose will load on the screen.
A variety of reports are available for download through AMP (Account Management
Program). The reports include:
- Radiation Exposure Summary Report
- History Detail Report
- Who Has Not Read Their Device
- Form 5 (in United States only)
