Unit 2.2 task 3 Laboratory Analysis
explain how you would make the specialist and non-specialist laboratory safe, secure,energy efficient and effective for its purpose.
List of equipment in a specialist radio pharmaceutical lab

Linear accelerator
• Lead shielding
• Gamma Camera
• Computer control system
• Geiger counter
• Ventilation system
• Fume cupboard
• Co detector
• Radio pharmaceutical generator
• Radio pharmaceutical storage safe
• Radiation waste bin
• Glass bin
• Regular bin
• Gloves and goggles station
• Lab coats
• Animal housing/testing bench
• 2 exit
• Sinks with disinfectant soap

Carbon monoxide detector
Safety with radioactive materials
Energy efficient lab
All of the lighting units feature sensors and will turn themselves off automatically if there is no one in the lab.
All of the non essential equipment will also switch itself off when not in use.
Solar panels have been fitted onto the roof of the building to encourage the use of green renewable energy.
Most of the lab equipment will run off the energy produced by the solar panels
The lab is very well insulated to minimize any extra heating consumption.
Safe and Secure
my specialist radio pharmaceutical lab houses many hazardous and expensive radioactive materials. Its important that these are locked away safely in a lead encased safe when not in use.

The linear accelerator will also require password and personal verification before it can be switched on for use.

Only select staff will be cleared for the lab so the entrance b will have a scanner and security camera attachment, so all staff that enter the lab will need to have their own key card or be buzzed in.
My specialist lab features many radioactive materials that have the potential to be hazardous, so in order to avoid any unwanted incidents its important that the appropriate safety measures are taken. Although the half life of the majority of the radio pharmaceuticals is short only lasting a few hours, its important that they are produced, used and stored safely and correctly. The Radio pharmaceutical generator features a thick layer of lead shielding on the outside coating to insure they are produced safely without giving any unnecessary dosages of radiation to the radiographer. Once used the pharmaceuticals are kept in lead boxes until there radiation levels have degraded to a safe level. The Lab also features a linear accelerator to measure the effect different energy levels of x-rays have on various tumors and cancerous tissue. This is fitted with large shielding and lead plated units to reduce exposure. A geiger counter is also available for use in the lab to detect the levels of radiation in any materials that may be hazardous.
Both labs feature gas taps, the specialist radio pharmaceutical lab will use a variety of different chemicals and gases to heat up and experiment with the pharmaceuticals. My specialist and general labs feature two CO detectors in either corner of the room which will sound an alarm if it detects any of the deadly CO gas. The detection of this gas will also trigger the fans in the ventilation system which will expel the gas safely outside.
