Ordering Radioactive Materials Through the RIAS System

Attention Researchers & RIAS Preparers:

All radioactive materials must be shipped directly to REHS.  REHS is responsible for receiving; processing and transporting all radioactive materials and ensuring University compliance with state and federal agencies.  If a radioactive materials package is delivered directly to your lab by a vendor or carrier - Do not open the package.  Report the package to REHS immediately. 

The RIAS system does not auto-populate the “Ship To” field with the REHS address, therefore you must manually change the delivery address.  Please ensure a copy of this procedure is provided to all RIAS preparers in your department.  

ORDERING RADIOACTIVE MATERIALS VIA RIAS:

In the “describe your item” section:

  • Click on the flashlight for “category”
  • Select radioactive isotopes - the 7th option
  • Unit of measure – enter “each”
  • Quantity field – enter the number of vials being  ordered
Add to cart"
  • Enter isotope name and total activity (e.g. 2 vials of P-32 would be expressed as -500 uCi P-32)
  • Enter Authoree’s four digit PI number (e.g. 1001)
  • Let the RIAS preparers know the 4 digit authorization numbers 
Proceed to checkout"
  • Change “Deliver-to” to read  “LIV 4086" exactly
  • The RIAS system is case sensitive, be sure it reads LIV space 4086
  • Continue to process your order in the normal manner
Research staff must continue to call in all orders to REHS or submit them online.

IF A RAM PACKAGE IS DELIVERED DIRECTLY TO YOUR LAB CALL REHS AT 445-2550 IMMEDIATELY!
