To apply for initial use of radioactive tracers and sealed sources, contact EHS at 353-5389 to schedule a meeting to discuss your proposed usage. Then complete the “Authorization Request for Radioactive Materials Use in the Basic Sciences” form found on the EHS website and mail it to EHS. Upon receipt, the application is initially reviewed by EHS and then forwarded to the Basic Science Radiation Protection Committee for their review. The authorization process usually takes 3-4 weeks to complete.
Once the authorization is approved, an authorization number is granted. The authorization is limited to only the radionuclide(s), chemical form(s), and methodologies identified in the application.
