This is the (still secret) TLD reader
Our 1mm calibrated thermoluminescent micro silica beads and arrays.
THE micro silica thermoluminescent radiation detector company!
TrueInvivo’s CTO, Dr. Shakardokht Jafari, discovered the excellent properties of glass bead detectors for measuring radiation. Today, the company’s CE-marked micro silica thermoluminescent detectors can be used in radiotherapy, in nuclear areas, in food irradiation, in blood banks and in many other applications.
In-Body Measurement in Radiotherapy
Radiotherapy clinicians carefully calculate and test radiation treatment for each cancer patient. However, despite all the care, worldwide between 10% and 25% of radiotherapy patients do get damaged.
The problem is how to measure the accuracy in the body during radiotherapy. No one can see what has been hit. No one knows the effects until the patient reports problems weeks later.
TRUEinvivo detectors measure the dose and spread of radiation received at the tumour. The clinician can check and adjust for accuracy the same day. No waiting. Less damage.
Research in Dosimetry
Micro silica thermoluminescent radiation detectors (TLDs) are new in dosimetry but already have over 30 published papers. TRUEinvivo encourages the widest range of TLD ideas to be researched and tested to see what advances can be made using this exciting new technology. Our aim is to help researchers and research projects around the world.
We provide CE-marked characterised micro silica TLDs in a dedicated Researcher Kit for such investigations and projects. We are also developing a new type of automated fast TLD reader. Contact us to join our International Researcher Network.
Nuclear, Food, Blood Banks and the Rest!
Our micro silica thermoluminescent detectors (TLDs) can detect all types of ionising radiation. Glass beads are inert, small, simple and robust – and have high performance – and measure radiation doses in high resolution in difficult conditions such as
- In aqueous environments
- In small or large radiation fields
- In in-body situations

It was Shakar who said “I want to take the results of great research into the reality of people’s daily lives. Not just in advanced countries but everywhere in the world. Let’s improve health and well-being. Let’s save lives”. That is our mission.
