Landauer, Inc. provides technical and analytical services to determine occupational and environmental radiation exposure; outsourced medical physics services; and radiology related medical products worldwide. Segments The company operates in three primary business segments: Radiation Measurement, Medical Physics, and Medical Products. Radiation Measurement This segment provides complete radiation dosimetry services to hospitals, medical and dental offices, universities, national laboratories, nuclear facilities and other industries in which radiation poses a potential threat to employees. The company’s services include the manufacture of various types of radiation detection monitors, the distribution and collection of the monitors to and from customers, and the analysis and reporting of exposure findings. In addition to providing analytical services, the company might sell dosimetry detectors and reading equipment to large customers that want to manage their own dosimetry programs, or into smaller international markets in which it is not economical to establish a direct service. The majority of this segment’s revenues are realized from radiation measurement services and other services incidental to radiation dose measurement. As part of its services, the company provides to its customers radiation detection badges, which are produced and owned by the company. The badges are worn for a period selected by the customer (wear period), which is usually one, two, or three months in duration. At the end of the wear period, the badges are returned to the company for analysis. The company analyzes the badges that have been worn and provides the customer with a report indicating their radiation exposures. The company recycles certain badge components for reuse, while also producing replacement badges on a continual basis. The company offers its service for measuring the dosages of X-ray, gamma radiation and other penetrating ionizing radiations to which the wearer has been exposed, primarily through badges, which contain OSL (optically stimulated luminescence) material, and are worn by customer personnel. This technology is marketed under the trade names Luxel+ and InLight. This segment’s InLight dosimetry system provides in-house and commercial laboratories with the ability to provide in-house radiation measurement services using OSL technology. InLight services might involve a customer acquiring dosimetry devices, as well as analytical reading equipment from the company. The system is based on the company’s proprietary technology and instruments, and dosimetry devices developed in Japan. The InLight system allows customers the flexibility to tailor their precise dosimetry needs. This segment’s RadWatch and RadLight system provides the military and first responder user with a portable, field-ready option for tactical radiation monitoring using OSL technology. RadWatch and RadLight is offered through a joint venture with Yamasato, Fujiwara, and Higa & Associates, Inc., doing business as Aquila Group, a small business supplier to the International Atomic Energy Agency and the United States (U.S.) Military. The company provides dosimetry parts to Aquila Group for their military contract. RadWatch and RadLight solution fulfills a recognized gap for acquiring a legal dose of record for radiation emergency response teams. Other radiation measurement-related services augment the basic radiation measurement services that the company offers, providing administrative and informational tools to customers for the management of their radiation safety programs. Medical Physics This segment’s medical physics services are provided through the company’s Landauer Medical Physics (LMP) division. The company owns Global Physics Solutions, Inc. and Upstate Medical Physics, a provider of imaging physics services in upstate New York. In addition, four smaller regional practices were also acquired to augment the LMP operations. With primary offices in Illinois and New York, LMP has operations throughout the U.S. The company uses LMP as a platform to expand into the medical physics services market, serving domestic h
