OSI is Going Green

August 3, 2018

OSI’s calibration lab is reducing its dependence on single-use plastics. Conventional packaging for dose rate, count rate or integrating devices uses bubble wrap that is ecologically toxic and takes hundreds of years to break down. OSI acknowledges the changing needs of customers and the environment by moving towards more sustainable options. At OSI, radiation detection equipment that is calibrated or repaired onsite will be shipped using recycled shredded cardboard as packing material.

In other news, the calibration lab at OSI has recalibrated all three of their NIST traceable Cs-137 calibration sources in accordance with the ISO 17025 accreditation. This biennial calibration guarantees that all dose measurements have an associated uncertainty of less than 5%. OSI propagates 18 different variables into its uncertainty calculations to assure the highest quality of calibrations.
