CAUTION: No internal adjustments inside the Well Counter may be performed by
the user within the conditions of the warranty. Due to the presence of
high voltage, opening the cover with the system plugged in may be
hazardous. Refer all servicing to qualified personnel.

CAUTION: Never use the CAPRAC®-t without the well liner in place. Liners are
inexpensive and easy to replace. A contaminated well is a very costly
mistake. If the unit becomes contaminated, remove the liner and clean
the unit as stated in CHAPTER 14: CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE,
SECTION: CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS before operating.

CAUTION: Care must be exercised when moving the instrument or when
maintenance is performed. The shielded cylinder is heavy (6.9 kg or 15.2
lb.). It is essential to avoid mechanical shock or vibration of any kind.

CAUTION: It is desirable to leave the unit powered at all times in order to prevent
moisture absorption and to maintain the stability of the instrument
(especially if the instrument is subjected to high humidity or low
temperature).

CAUTION: This equipment generates radio frequency energy and, if not installed
and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful
Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) to nearby devices. However, there is
no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.

CAUTION: If any printer other than one of the models supplied by Capintec is used,

the safety of the unit may be compromised or Electromagnetic

Interference (EMI) may be introduced into other devices located in the
same general area as the CAPRAC®-t or the CAPRAC®-t may become

susceptible to EMI.

October 13 SAFETY 1-3

CAPINTEC, INC. CAPRAC®-t

CAUTION: The Well Counter contains lead. Appropriate caution should be taken if
the interior of the unit is exposed. The unit should be disposed of in
accordance with local and national regulations.

CAUTION: The Readout unit contains a Lithium Battery. This should be disposed of
in accordance with local and national regulations.

CAUTION: The user should always verify the validity of any measurement or test
result in order to minimize measurement errors.

Note: It is recommended that periodic (every five years) re-calibration of the unit be
performed only by Capintec’s Authorized Service Center (reference CHAPTER 14:
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE) to guarantee that the instrument's high reliability is
maintained).

GENERAL SAFETY TIPS

 Unplug the equipment before cleaning it. Use only a damp cloth; do not use solvents
or aerosol cleaners.

 To protect the equipment from overheating, do not use the equipment directly in front
of a radiator or heat register.

 Do not use the equipment near water, or spill liquids of any kind into the equipment.

 Be sure that your power source matches the rating listed on the CAPRAC®-t.

 The CAPRAC®-t power cord has a grounded, 3-prong plug as a safety feature, and it
will only fit into a grounded outlet. Do not use an adapter to defeat the grounding.

 To avoid damaging the power cord, do not place anything on it or place it where it will
be stepped on. If the cord becomes damaged, replace it immediately.

 Aside from the routine maintenance described in this manual, do not try to service
this equipment yourself. Do not make any adjustments other than those outlined in

Technologists and Physicians, for performing Wipe Tests, Schillings Test, Plasma Volume
Test with I 125, RBC Volume Test with Cr51 and RBC Survival Test.

Also using the system are Health Physicists with expertise in nuclear medicine and radiation
safety – typically used for assessing reproducibility of counting instruments with various
Quality Assurance procedures (Chi-Square, MDA).

The CAPRAC®-t also performs Pulse Height Analysis, isotope identification, radioisotope
decay corrections, efficiency calculations and maintains a database for storage and easy
retrieval of patient demographic data and measurement results.

OPERATOR TRAINING
This Owner’s Manual contains all of the information required to operate the CAPRAC®-t.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION
The activity of the sample will be displayed with a proper unit when a sample of unknown
strength (activity) of a known radioisotope is placed in the Well Counter and the correct
efficiency is input or measured.

With its NaI drilled-well crystal detector, the Well Counter offers greater sensitivity and faster
results than other wipe test monitors that use Geiger-Mueller (GM) tubes.

The microprocessor-controlled CAPRAC®-t has an automatic internal energy calibration
feature, which permits self-calibration of the keV per channel ratio.

For isotopes that have a measured efficiency, the CAPRAC®-t will convert readings in cpm
[counts per minute] to dpm [disintegrations per minute]. Most federal and state regulations
require survey monitoring results in dpm.

The CAPRAC®-t contains gamma spectroscopy data for 76 nuclides and efficiencies for 11
nuclides. Reference the Appendix for a complete listing of the nuclides included in the
CAPRAC®-t’s memory.

Note: The CAPRAC®-t Well Counter is not designed to provide conclusive identification of
radionuclides in samples. The CAPRAC®-t Well Counter is designed to provide the

2-2 FUNCTIONAL & TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION February 14

CAPINTEC, INC. CAPRAC®-t

first step for users who need to identify contaminants by narrowing down the
possibilities of which isotopes are contained in wipe test samples.

The CAPRAC®-t also provides a “Full Spectrum Efficiency” result for a wipe sample by
grouping all 256 channels together as one open-energy window. This indicates whether a
sample exceeds trigger levels, but does not help identify the contaminant.

POWER UP
When the instrument is first powered up, Figure 2-1 Startup Screen will appear.

Figure 2-1 Startup Screen

Wipe Test

The Wipe Test measures radioactive contamination for nuclear medicine departments and
laboratories, as mandated by state and federal radiation safety requirements.

Lab Tests

Urine Test
Schilling Test
The Schilling Test utilizes Cobalt 57 labeled Vitamin B-12 and is used to determine B-
12 deficiencies from either malabsorption, lack of intrinsic factor (pernicious anemia),
or intraintestinal destruction. The test entails collection of urine for 24 or 48 hours
after the oral administration of radioactive labeled vitamin B-12. The ratio of excreted
to administered Co57 is calculated. If the initial results indicate a reduced amount of
excreted vitamin, the test is repeated with a second sample of labeled B-12 and
intrinsic factor. For Schilling Test I, abnormal results are generally less than 8%-10%.
Normal range is generally 11% to 26%. For Schilling Test II, no change indicates
malabsorption, while an improved percentage indicates pernicious anemia.

Blood Tests
Plasma Volume Test
Blood Volume determinations involving radioactive tagging are most frequently used
in specific disease conditions when the hematocrit may not accurately estimate true
blood volume. Such conditions include extensive trauma or burn patients, certain
types of anemia, and polycythemia. Most frequently used radioactive tracers are
protein labeled I-125 for plasma measurements and Cr51 tagged RBCs for red cell
mass determinations.

RBC Volume Test
This test is used to determine red blood cell volume or mass and is most frequently
used in specific disease conditions when the hematocrit may not accurately estimate
true blood volume. In this test, Cr51 tagged RBCs are used as radioactive tracers for
red cell mass determination.

RBC Survival Test
RBC survival determination involving radioactive tagging is most frequently used in
diagnosis of hemolytic anemia. The CAPRAC®-t software and default counting
parameters follow the testing protocol outlined in the Mallinckrodt RBC Survival Kit
that utilizes Sodium Chromate Cr51 injections. The software standardizes the 24-hour
sample to 100% survival, and automatically decay corrects each subsequent sample.
This permits the user to measure each sample as soon as it is collected. For this
reason, all sample volumes must be the same. Each sample must also have a
hematocrit (HCT) entered. The subsequent samples are corrected for any differences
in hematocrit.
