Isotope Information

Isotope Ordering

Radioisotopes must be purchased through the HokieMart system. Please note the following when completing a request:

  • use the shipping code "D423" to specify the correct (EHSS) ship to address
  • use "Doug Smiley / Dr. {insert authorized user's name here}" for contact name
  • phone number must be 540-231-5364
  • email address is, "smileydc@vt.edu"
  • specify shipping via "Best Carrier-Priority Overnight" (this allows orders to be delivered to labs in the afternoon after receipt)
  • specify account code of "13415"
  • add an internal note with the radioisotope and activity if not already noted in the catalog line item
  • add an external note stating delivery time, e.g. "Delivery xx/xx/xx AM; Please provide confirmation to smileydc@vt.edu"

HokieMart orders are reviewed and approved several times each day but be sure to allow sufficient time for the requesting department to process internally so that the order is received by Radiation Safety no later than noon the day before you need the material.

note: Often HokieMart does not show our discounted pricing, but the correct pricing will actually be used by the vendors.

There are special exceptions to the use of HokieMart. If your department cannot process an order through HokieMart in time, you may use the Radiation Safety On-Line Purchasing system.
