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.
All calibrations are performed by EHS staff free of charge unless the instrument needs repair or we are unable to perform the task
All radiation instruments ordered or brought to UVA must be approved by EHS and delivered to EHS prior to being used by the lab. This ensures that the instrument is entered into our database and can be tracked for calibration.
Contact Greg Payne about Instruments and Calibrations at 434-982-4942 or 434.982.4911.
Information on proper use and maintenance of survey instruments can be found in section 20 of the University Radiation Safety Guide.
We have also created a short video demonstrating how to properly opcheck and survey with your laboratory radiation survey instrument.
