The NRC has approved the Safkeg-LS Model # 3979A with the issue of certificate USA/9337/ B(U)-96 on January 24, 2011. This is the first general purpose Type B package to be approved by the NRC for many years and is now the only package currently approved for contents which in the past have been shipped in the DOT Spec 6M package for which the DOT package authorization expired on October 1, 2008. The Safkeg-LS was developed by Croft for the University of Missouri for shipping radioisotopes produced by the MU research reactor: these radioisotopes are used principally in a variety of medical applications including diagnostic kits and cancer-fighting radio-pharmaceuticals.
