Abstract : An apparatus which uses suction to draw radioactive particles through a high efficiency filter and contains such filtered particles in a disposable bladder-filter unit for subsequent disposal. The bladder-filter unit prevents the escape of filtered radioactive particles to the ambient atmosphere during the operation of the apparatus and also during disposal, as well as preventing the radioactive contamination of the remainder of the apparatus.
