Landauer, Inc. provides technical and analytical services to determine occupational and environmental radiation exposure. The company also provides outsourced medical physics services and radiology related medical products. The company operates through three primary business segments: Radiation Measurement, Medical Physics, and Medical Products. The company provides radiation dosimetry services to hospitals, medical and dental offices, universities, national laboratories, nuclear facilities, and other industries in which radiation poses a threat to employees. Its services include the manufacture of various types of radiation detection monitors, the distribution and collection of the monitors to and from customers, and the analysis and reporting of exposure findings. These services are provided to approximately 1.8 million individuals worldwide. In addition to providing analytical services, the company might lease or sell dosimetry detectors and reading equipment to customers that want to manage their own dosimetry programs, or into smaller international markets in which it is not economical to establish a direct service. The company provides radiation detection badges to its customers, which are produced and owned by the company. The badges are worn for a period selected by the customers (wear period), which is one, two, or three months in duration. At the end of the wear period, the badges are returned to the company for analysis. The company analyzes the badges that have been worn and provides its customers with a report indicating their radiation exposures. The company recycles certain badge components for reuse, while also producing replacement badges on a continual basis. The company offers its service for measuring the dosages of X-ray, gamma radiation, and other penetrating ionizing radiations to which the wearer has been exposed, primarily through badges, which contain optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) material, which are worn by customer personnel. This technology is marketed under the Luxel+ and InLight trade names. A major component of the company’s dosimetry system is OSL crystal material. The company’s base OSL material is manufactured utilizing a proprietary process to create aluminum oxide crystals in a structure that is able to retain charged electrons following the crystal’s exposure to radiation. Radiation Measurement’s InLight dosimetry system provides in-house and commercial laboratories with the ability to provide in-house radiation measurement services using OSL technology. InLight services might involve a customer acquiring or leasing dosimetry devices, as well as analytical reading equipment from the company. The system is based on the company’s proprietary technology and instruments, and dosimetry devices developed in Japan. The InLight system allows customers the flexibility to tailor their precise dosimetry needs. Radiation Measurement’s RadWatch-RadLight system provides the military and first responder user with a field-ready option for tactical radiation monitoring using OSL technology. RadWatch-RadLight is offered through a partnership agreement with Yamasato, Fujiwara, Higa & Associates, Inc. (YFH), doing business as, Aquila. RadWatch-RadLight solution fulfills a gap for acquiring a legal dose of record for radiation emergency response teams. Other radiation measurement-related services (ancillary services) augment the basic radiation measurement services that the company offers, providing administrative and informational tools to customers for the management of their radiation safety programs. The company’s subsidiary, Gammadata Mätteknik AB (GDM), provides measurement services throughout the Scandinavian region and Europe. The company owns a dosimetry service in Sweden, called Landauer Persondosimetri AB (PDM). GDM and PDM are known as Landauer Nordic AB. The company has a joint venture in Turkey, which provides radiation measurement services. In 2012, the company invested for a 49% minority interest in YFH, doing business as, Aquila, a small business supplier to the International Atomic Energy Agency, as well as the United States (U.S.) Military.
