Our customers from Belgium and abroad can count on:

  • Our dosimeters perform accurate measurements and our specialists meticulously monitor the measurement results. If a dose limit is exceeded, SCK CEN immediately alerts the customer.

  • All current dosimeter subscriptions are managed and registered in an online platform. Customers can at any time consult their data online, adjust data, add new and delete former employees, apply for extra dosimeters...

  • Since 2014, the dose data of personnel must be sent electronically to the Federal Agency for Nuclear Control (FANC). SCK CEN helps to draw up the required documents or tables in the reports for FANC.

SCK CEN listens to your needs and requirements and adapts the choice of dosimeter. The research centre acts as your partner in three areas: personal dosimetry, ambient dosimetry and reactor dosimetry.

SCK CEN - Dosimetrie (2019)

Personal dosimetry

Certain work processes, including nuclear medicine and dentistry, use radioactive substances. These radioactive substances emit ionising radiation: radiation that may cause damage to tissue and DNA. Upon an increased exposure, the risk of health damage increases. The legal limits of the radiation dose that a person is allowed to be exposed to, in a professional context or not, have been established. We measure the individual exposure dose for businesses, hospitals or other institutions. Currently, about 11,000 people in Belgium and the Netherlands are wearing a dosimeter from SCK CEN. As a standard, SCK CEN offers dosimeters for the entire body, which are carried by employees on their chest. Depending on your needs and requirements, these can be supplemented with a finger, eye lens or lead apron dosimeter.

  • SCK CEN - Dosimeter Inlight (2019)

    InLight body dosimeter

    You want to measure the radiation energy on your body in an efficient manner? This is possible with the InLight dosimeter on your chest. You can send this highly standardised body dosimeter to SCK CEN for an accurate reading.

SCK CEN - Dosimetrie (2019)

Ambient dosimetry

Operators of nuclear sites and medical equipment have installed in their working area special measuring poles with dosimeters to monitor the impact of artificial sources of radioactivity on the environment. With this highly sensitive measuring equipment, SCK CEN measures the doses near these installations and registers even the smallest fluctuations in radioactivity. Every three months, SCK CEN exchanges and reads the dosimeters.
