Please note that some Users’ Manuals and online FAQ entries written prior to this time may have advised using alcohol to more easily rid phantoms, particularly those in the Mini, Micro and Ultra Micro classes, of air bubbles. This is no longer recommended.
For any Data Spectrum Phantom, NEVER use any kind of alcohol or solvent to fill them. Use of alcohol or solvents of any kind is very likely to eventually damage your methyl methacrylate (MMA) or polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) phantom, even at low concentrations.
Please see our FAQ entry for approved methods of minimizing air bubbles in phantoms.
This notice superceeds information found in manuals and elsewhere printed prior to April 2006.
