(1) The instrument calibration fee is charged by the OSU Radiation Center. Instrument pickup and delivery are available at no charge from Radiation Safety. Instruments must have annual calibration. Radiation Safety has some instruments available as loaners while lab instrument is being calibrated or repaired.

(2) Dosimeters are considered "lost" when not returned within 90 days from the end of the wear period; radiation exposure cannot be accurately determined for badges returned after 90 days from the end of the wear period.

(3) X-ray machine registrations are a biannual fee. These fees are assessed by the Oregon State Health Division.

(4) Sealed source leak tests include counting, recording and reporting. There is no charge to OSU groups for leak tests.
