If the friend who bought them for you carried them through security, they
should be fine. The x-ray machines for hand
luggage aren't that powerful and ISO 100 isn't very sensitive.
If it went through as checked baggage, it could easily be affected. Those
machines have to see through great thicknesses
of stuff, and ramp up the power until they can see everything.
