Iodination Lab Use

Iodination Laboratory Use


Iodinations involve the use of relatively high concentrations of I-125 Sodium Iodide which is known to be volatile in air and readily absorbed by the thyroid gland if inhaled or absorbed internally. Uncapped vials of I-125 and laboratory contamination with I-125 may potentially lead to uptake in the thyroid gland and extra precautions are necessary above and beyond the normal Standard Operating Procedures for Unsealed Sources.


All iodination procedures must be done in room 014 Rowell Building.

All iodination users must be trained by RSO personnel and then pass multiply choice exam before being allowed to iodinate.

See the Iodination Standard Operating Procedures for more information.
