The Dosi-Lite provides illumination for a Direct-Reading Dosimeter in low light conditions which is held directly in front of the eye for viewing. The Dosi-Lite comprises of a light-emitting diode (LED) enclosed in a thimble-shaped flexible plastic casing, which slides onto the end of a dosimeter. When the user squeezes the casing, the leads are brought into contact with the batteries, thereby completing the circuit, lighting the LED, and illuminating the Direct-Reading Dosimeter.

The Dosi-Lite is designed for personnel that spend extended periods in areas with lighting which is insufficient or inconvenient for reading the Direct-Reading Dosimeter, thus running the risk of being exposed to excessive radiation before taking the next reading. The Dosi-Lite provides a convenient illuminating device for Direct-Reading Dosimeters that fits onto the end of a Direct-Reading Dosimeter.
