Syringe-Shield-ClearView

ClearView Beta – Gamma Syringe Shield 

The ClearView Beta-Gamma Syringe Shield is constructed of polycarbonate and acrylic materials which shields against Beta emission and errant bremsstrahlung, and the tungsten based ClearView solution inside attenuates gamma’s. A single syringe shield works with 10cc and 20cc syringes. A thumbscrew holds the syringe firmly in place.
