I use a Staticmaster brush, the one with the radioactive Polonium 210 alpha particle emitter strip. The radioactive strip has a limited half-life so a replacement once a year is recommended. The brush works pretty well even after the radioactivity has faded.

I also use one of these, which I inherited from my father, in my darkroom. The guarantee ran out in Nov. 1954 so I think the radioactivity will be dead but it is still a fine brush. I have a memory of my father saying that it made the dust jump off the film.
