Static Magnetic Fields

Health Physics Services (HPS), Research Safety can assist in the measurement of static magnetic fields produced by various instrumentation used in biology, chemistry, engineering, physics and medicine.  HPS has equipment which can measure low and moderate magnetic fields.

All equipment must be evaluated to determine the 5 Gauss (0.5mT) boundary. Please contact HPS when making significant changes to your instrument(s) that could alter the magnetic field within (or outside) your laboratory.  HPS can also assist with appropriate signage.

Questions? Simply contact HPS.
