At Capintec, our commitment to PET covers not only our
full line of products, but our belief in the importance of
coordination. We are experienced in working closely with
the manufacturers of scanners and cyclotrons and with
architects and builders to coordinate the design, planning
and installation of your equipment.

We fully understand Capintec’s range of products has long served the needs of the nucle-
the needs for: ar medicine community---from our first CRC® dose calibrator with
• Precisely engineered and built a single ion chamber, to our most recent CRC-55t® series of cali-
brators have allowed us to become a leading supplier of healthcare
for continuous, reliable use products associated with diagnostic imaging, radiation therapy, and
• Products that provide high levels radiation protection.
Through the development of a complete measurement and protec-
of protection tion system designed specifically for PET, and drawing on 45 years
• Design flexibility to adapt to dif- of experience in radiation protection, we are positioned to provide
you with the best designed, built and guaranteed radiation measure-
ferent environments and activity ment, protection and storage products available today.
• A modern, aesthetically appeal-
ing appearance
• A technical staff to provide
training and service upon and
after installation at the facility
In addition, our engineering depart-
ment utilizes the latest 3D model-
ing design software. It allows us to
customize products to suit particular
design requirements. Using these
skills, Capintec will deliver and install
a complete system, on time and on

Capintec provides custom shielding for a wide range of hoods and
enclosures. Whether you require an one inchof lead surrounding
a work area or 2” of PET thick shielding and an integral lead glass
mobile body shield for quality assurance or dose preparation. Capin-
tec’s engineers will be able to design custom hood shielding to your
Fully shielded Biological Safety Cabinet and Radioisotope Fume
Hoods feature a mobile body shield with lead glass, to view the
working area while protecting the worker. The mobile body shield
can be moved to allow replacement of filters and for certification
and servicing the hood. The mobile body shield moves smoothly
into place or out of the way. Our engineers will be glad to work with
you to design the product that best meets your needs. Detailed draw-
ings and specifications for typical designs are available to assist your
efforts. Drawings for custom configurations are available on request.

rounded by a rubber grommet to prevent damage to the glass. Fluores-
cent gold gloss covers the interior of the syringe shield for exceptional
visibility of the syringe contents.
An optional “Double Clip” security holder is also available.

511 Dose-Drawing Syringe Shield

The 511 Dose Drawing Syringe Shields are constructed with the same
featured shielding as the 511 C-Tec Syringe Shields. The needle end
of the syringe shield has a Tungsten disc that protects the user’s hands
during the dose drawing procedure.
There are 2 pins in the end disc that secure the shield to the Drawing
Station. This allows single handed dose removal from the drawing sta-
