It’s not uncommon for veterinary clinics to experience high turnover with technicians. There are many reasons for this, including compensation and the age of most techs, which is often quite young. Therefore, veterinarians and those who run their offices often find themselves in a perpetual state of hiring new talent. That can be expensive — not only because training costs a significant amount of time and money, but also because clinics that use traditional dosimeters to safeguard the health of their staff must provide a new dosimeter to the new hire and that may take a few months.

With the Instadose®+ dosimeter, you can eliminate at least one of the challenges associated with employee turnover. The device has a built-in memory chip with an embedded, unique serial code that is assigned to the user. The chip records a technician’s daily and cumulative exposure to ionizing radiation, allowing the information to be accessed instantaneously online or via a mobile app. The Instadose+ dosimeter uses digital technology (as opposed to OSL, TLD or film dosimeters), which means it can be reassigned quickly and easily online when an employee leaves, so it is ready for the next technician to join your practice without any downtime. Therefore, money invested in this technology, that safeguards the health of technicians, is money well spent.

Veterinary technicians need to wear a dosimeter because they are at high risk of being exposed to radiation since they must often hold their patients during X-rays. The Instadose+ dosimeter gives technicians the flexibility to check their dose exposure at any time. It also gives them the ability to know if they are exceeding their dose limit, versus waiting for a report to be delivered at the end of their monthly or quarterly wear period, giving them peace of mind.
