Abstract

ISO/ASTM 51939:2013 outlines irradiator installation qualification, operational qualification, performance qualification and routine product processing dosimetric procedures to be followed in the irradiation of blood and blood components by the blood-banking community. If followed, these procedures will help to ensure that the products processed with ionizing radiation from gamma, X-radiation (bremsstrahlung), or electron sources receive absorbed doses within a predetermined range. ISO/ASTM 51939:2013 covers dosimetry for the irradiation of blood for these types of irradiators: self-contained irradiators (free-standing irradiators) utilizing 137Cs, 60Co or X-radiation (bremsstrahlung), teletherapy units, and electron accelerators. ISO/ASTM 51939:2013 also covers the use of radiation-sensitive indicators for the visual and qualitative indication that the product has been irradiated.
