RFID for Gamma Radiation

Challenges

RFID for Gamma Radation

Hospitals frequently use Gamma radiation and autoclave processes to sterilize surgical instruments and related equipment. This requires a durable identification system to mark and trace such items.

Solutions

  • Votum provides specialized RFID for medical equipment frequently disinfected using Gamma radiation.
  • Survives a cumulative radiation amount of 500 kGy
  • Also withstands autoclave sterilization processes
  • Available in wet or dry inlet
  • Works well with linear identification processes (conveyor belt, hanging items)
  • Ideal for high volume items

Benefits

  • Provides identification at a price point that makes item-level tagging practical
  • Uses the globally available 2.45 GHz radio frequency
