Alara Physics

Our radiation specialists provide timely and effective support to the medical and radiopharmaceutical communities for the safe use of radioactive materials.  Our services include complete radiological program development and licensing to routine surveillance programs and facility decommissioning.  The unique qualifications of our staff allow us to quickly deploy individuals to support your routine radiation safety and emergency situations.   We provide cost effective solutions to:

Radiation Safety Officer Support

Contract RSO services can be both efficient and cost effective for licensees who do not require a full time RSO or are in need of temporary or extra support.  Our large staff of Certified Health Physicists and Radiation Specialists provides both temporary and permanent RSO support to our clients to oversee and manage their radiation protection programs.  Our Radiation Safety Manager software helps effectively manage radioactive material licensee programs and significantly cut down on RSO workloads.

Manual and Procedure Writing

Our skilled procedure writers are proficient in the development and modification of radiation protection plans to ensure they are written effectively and meet current technical and regulatory standards. 

Audits and Assessments

Our staff can assist in providing quality audits and assessments to demonstrate compliance with NRC, Agreement State, EPA,  and other requirements.   We also provide  support for Nuclear Medicine Departments by performing quarterly audits and attendance at RSC meetings.

Facility Design and Shielding Evaluations

We have an expert team of Radiological Engineers who can design facilities used to house both radioactive material and X-ray machines.  Our design engineers will provide expert advice to ensure your facility meets regulatory requirements and standards set by the National Council on Radiation Protection.  We can perform shielding calculations for both diagnostic and therapeutic X-ray installations as well as brachytherapy units and waste storage facilities.

Radioactive Source Leak Testing

Our analytical laboratory is licensed to analyze leak test samples for sealed radioactive sources that require periodic leak testing.  We have a large inventory of NIST-traceable reference standards that allow for analysis of all commonly used isotopes in use in your Hot Lab.

Radiation Instrumentation, Monitoring and Survey Support

We provide a cost-effective solution to augmenting your in-house technical staff.  Our highly trained staff of Radiation Technicians and Health Physics Supervisors provides quality assistance to complete your day-to-day radiation protection activities.  Our Instrumentation and Calibration Division boasts the highest quality and best cost for the sales, calibration, and repair of all types of portable and fixed instrumentation including cyclotron area and stack monitors. 

Training

Our training division conducts both open enrollment and custom training for medical facilities nationwide.  Over the past two decades, hundreds of medical professionals have taken our Radiation Safety Officer training and our Advanced Radiation Safety Officer training.  We have a variety of course material for medical facilities ranging from indoctrination training to detailed training on specific radiation procedures.

Decommissioning and Environmental Remediation

Our staff is internationally renowned in providing world-class decommissioning services to radiological facilities around the globe.  Our decommissioning services include decommissioning cost estimation, full service facility decontamination,  and final status surveys.   We pride ourselves in providing expert contamination control support and specialize in alpha contamination programs.

Radioactive Waste Services

Our health physicists and waste experts specialize in providing cost effective ways to manage and dispose of waste from medical facilities.  We support all types of site and waste characterization and can design proper programs and facilities used to support decay-in-storage of short-lived medical waste.
