Subject: LightCheck


From: Fiona Cahill <fiona.cahill<-a>

I have been asked to review the dosimeters we use in our galleries,
and from the literature see that LightCheck
<URL:> has been a promoted as a
replacement for blue wool dosimeters. Reading around the subject I
see that there is a lot of literature on the initial LiDO Project,
and post prints of presentation given at the ICOM-CC Conference in
2002 and 2005, and an article in the SSCR 2005 amongst others.
However, what I can't seem to find is any information on
institutions that have incorporated LightCheck into their
environmental monitoring systems, and the pros and cons they have
experienced. So my questions are; does anyone use LightCheck (both
Sensitive and Ultra), what types of materials are they monitoring,
is it easy to read, experiences both good and bad. The usual
questions really.
