RADSticker Peel and Stick Dosimeter

The RADSticker is a stockpileable peel & stick, quarter sized personal casualty dosimeter providing wearers (general public, medical personnel, first responders) timely personal radiation exposure information in an event of an accident at a nuclear power plant, a dirty bomb explosion or other type of radiological emergency. The RADSticker was specifically designed to quickly determine need for medical treatment and to minimize panic.

The RADSticker has a sensor (a rectangular strip between the color bars) providing an easy to understand visual indication of radiation exposure using a color scale staged at 25, 50, 100, 200 and 400 rad bars.

When exposed to gamma or xray radiation, the RADSticker sensor changes color instantly. The color changes are permanent, cumulative and proportional to accumulated dose.

The RADSticker is sensitive to gamma/X-ray radiation (higher than 30 KeV) and high energy (e.g., above 1 MeV) electrons/beta particles.

RADSticker can help you to minimize additional radiation exposure to As Low As Reasonably Achievable, ideally < 100 rads (100% survivable for healthy adults, if not exceeded).

Be creative with their use. Stick one on the back of your driver's license, inside the door of your home or office, etc...

RADSticker is made under U.S. Patents #7,227,158; 7,476,874 and others. The technology was developed with funding from several U.S. government agencies, including DHS, DOD, DOJ, DOS, DHHS and TSWG. The RADSticker has been extensively field tested by DHS and 800 first responders across the states of NJ, NY and IL.
