Ordering Radioactive Material


The acquisition of all radioactive material must be approved in advance by the Radiation Safety Officer to avoid hazards in improper use or undue costs in waste disposal. Only Authorized Users on UTSA's Radioactive Materials License can acquire radioactive materials. The requirement for prior approval of each acquisition applies to purchases, "no charge" donations, free trial samples or free replacement shipments, General License material, and to transfers between labs or from or to another institution.

Please contact Radiation Safety Personnel to order radioactive material. Please allow 72 hours for order placement as several financial approvals are necessary before RSO approval. For rush orders, apprise signers of the need for immediate approval. For all orders, email Radiation Safety Personnel to ensure timely approval.

If you want to transfer radioactive material between labs or between institutions, contact Radiation Safety Personnel. Stringent state and federal regulations do not allow individuals to transport or ship radioactive material themselves.

Requirements for obtaining radioactive material are available in the Radiation Safety Manual.

For more information, contact Radiation Safety Personnel.
