Y-90 Zevalin mixing and dose drawing is performed using a 10 ml reaction vial supplied by IDEC in the Zevalin kit. This shield is designed to fit that specific vial, and to attenuate beta and bremsstrahlung radiation associated with yttrium-90. The shield's top and bottom are threaded and knurled to allow quick insertion and removal of vials with minimal hand exposure. The top cover incorporates a septum access aperture with a pivoting shield to further reduce exposure. Specifications:
