Thermo Fisher Scientific has announced the launch of the Thermo Scientific™ NetDose™ Pro digital dosimeter, a wearable, connected device for monitoring radiation. This compact instrument is designed to track and inform radiation exposure risk for personnel in a variety of industries – such as healthcare – and help companies adhere to stringent regulatory requirements. The new instrument does this by continuously measuring radiation levels and transmitting the data to either a personal mobile application or a web-based user interface, keeping both personal and customer information secure during the process. 


The NetDose Pro represents a significant leap forward in personal dosimetry, replacing costly and labor-intensive methods that require sending devices back to manufacturers for analysis. The dosimeter uses Bluetooth 5.0 wireless technology to connect to a gateway data router and/or the NetDose mobile app, transmitting accurate and rapid data to an interface where users can monitor radiation levels and generate reports, as well as assign devices to wearers and manage their entire dosimetry system.

Each dosimeter can be individually programmed to transmit data at scheduled intervals, while the wearer can read radiation levels on-demand via a button found on the device. Importantly, the entire system – NetDose Pro, gateway router, mobile app and user interface – is secure, and the NetDose Pro only stores measured radiation dose data in its memory, omitting customer and wearer information. The device is perfect for healthcare professionals working near radiation sources – such as radiologists – as well as any personnel frequently in proximity to high energy radiation, including industrial scrap metal recyclers, veterinarians and dentists.


  • Real-Time Insights: The NetDose Pro offers accurate and rapid readings with a low limit of detection. On-demand and preprogrammed radiation dose readings offer immediate insights without removing the device, informing immediate action to reduce radiation exposure risk. 
  • Reliable performance: With a long life and replaceable battery, the NetDose Pro is also stable over a wide temperature range (-20 to 40 °C), making it appropriate for a variety of monitoring environments.  
  • Ease of Use: Customizable user interface generates personalized reports and graphs, as well as tailored reading intervals. Compact and lightweight (~30 g) design makes it comfortable for the wearer, while the connected platform eliminates the need to exchange the device with the manufacturer or navigate badge reassignment challenges.
