Abstract : This report describes current arrays used to hold and position objects for irradiation in the AFRRT 60Co irradiation facility. The arrays are specifically designed for use with nonhuman primates, canines, ferrets, guinea pigs, rats, mice, spores, cells, and chemicals. Dosimetry characteristics, such as dose conversion factors and field uniformity, have been determined for each array.
