SFSU is required to register radiation-producing machines such as x-ray devices in mail rooms and medical centers with the State of California’s Department of Public Health. When a new machine is being ordered or a machine will be moved, the University’s Radiation Safety Officer must be contacted as soon as possible so the State can be notified of the addition/change.

New users of the Bruker x-ray diffraction machine are required to get general radiation safety training from the RSO and machine-specific operating training from one of the Principal Investigators listed on the RUA.
