Re:       Bicron Stack Monitoring Systems Support


Our facility currently operates a number of Bicron NaI effluent monitoring
and data logging systems to track atmospheric discharges from a cyclotron
radipharmacy, a radiochemistry laboratory and PET imaging suite. We also
operate an additional three networked Bicron NaI waste monitoring and data
logging systems for tracking the movement of radioactive solid wastes. We
are generally very satisfied with these Bicron systems, and we have invested
time and energy into working with them, but we need to have continuing
detailed support. Without a commitment for support, we will be forced to
undertake the replacement of these systems. We are disappointed to have
received the news that our systems will no longer be supported by their
current vendor, Thermo Fisher Scientific. 


We are interested to receive information regarding what other Bicron users
are planning to do about this situation. In particular, if anyone knows of a
third party company that is able to assume responsibility for supporting
these Bicron systems, we would very much appreciate that information as
quickly as possible.
