Project: Optimation of the micronucleus assay by means of centromere detection inperipheral blood lymphocytes after irradiation.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
- Detection of centromeres in micronuclei, by means of in situ hybridisation, will allow us to discriminate between radiation induced and spontaneous micronuclei. With this method it will be feasible to detect damage induced by very low radiation doses. Further this method will be optimized so that automated scoring of Micronuclei and centromeres will be possible.
