Project: Implementation of sensitive and high throughput radiation technology to allow large scale biodosimetry screening
- project duration
- 01-SEP-05 – 31-AUG-10
- The large number of registered radiation workers in South Africa necessitates a sustainable biodosimetry service to ensure safe working practises. The main objective of this initiative is to implement, in the Partner Insitute, a routine biodosimetry service equipped with an automated image analysis system to allow biomonitoring of workers for radiation damage. For this extensive upgrading of local biomedical technicians in these techniques is needed.
