                       Safety Notes 
 
  1)  Beta radiation  shields  are unsuitable  for use against secondary x-rays (Bremsstrahlung) or gamma radiation.
 
  2)  Gamma radiation shields will  block emissions  effectively  from 125I  and any low energy gamma emitters. They are not suitable for more energetic isotopes of iodine.
       Heavier- walled shields are available for use with these isotopes - details on request. Gamma shields must not be used with beta isotopes  since Bremsstrahlung will be 
       produced.
 
  3)  Radioactive waste must never be stored on the benchtop for long periods and must be disposed of properly. Proper handling and storage of isotopes minimises  
       unnecessary exposure to radiation.
