All survey instruments used for required surveys must be calibrated annually. During calibration, your instruments will also be checked for proper operation and efficiencies will be recalculated.
Calibrations are performed by Radiation Safety staff free of charge unless the instrument needs repair or we are unable to perform the task.
Radiation instruments ordered or brought to UVA should be reviewed by Radiation Safety staff prior to being used by the lab. This ensures that the instrument is entered into our database and can be tracked for calibration.
Please contact Radiation Safety staff at 434.982.4919 for questions regarding your instruments.
Information on proper use and maintenance of survey instruments can be found in UVA's Radiation Safety Program Manual.
