Why A Dosimetry Badge?

Here at CHP Dosimetry, we specialize in measuring ionizing radiation dose. To do this we use what is commonly called by several names. These names include dosimetry badge, radiation badge, radiation dosimeter, or film badge (even though film is rarely used these days). The badges we offer from our service measure ionizing radiation. What this […]

Using Dose Weighting To Reduce Your Reported Dose From X-ray Exposure

The default method of measuring radiation exposure is to be as conservative as possible. What this means is that we make assumptions that error on the side of overestimating the dose. Dosimeters are used in a way that measures the highest dose point on an individual and assign that dose to the whole person. This […]

Referral Fees!

Some of you may know we offer referral fees.  In 2018 we paid out nearly $3000.00!  We figure that almost anyone can generate up to $1000 in referral fees for themselves, as a discount on the services they get, or for a favorite charity.  Here at CHP Dosimetry we pride ourselves on the value we […]

Just back from Denver at the HPS Midyear

Hi everyone. It was great to see a lot of familiar faces at the HPS midyear. In addition to catching up, we were able to show off our new Counts.Pro radiation measurement recording system. Counts.Pro connects your radiation meter output to your cell phone, turning your radiation meter into a GPS and cloud connected data […]

Happy New Year! Time to think about Instadose?

Hi Everyone, We hope you are having a great new year. Is it time to consider Instadose? Many of you have felt the sting of late badge fees. We hate them too. We have to pay the lab AND bear the bad news. Fortunately there is a silver lining. For those of you who have […]
