PURPOSE In case of a large-scale radiation accident when hundreds of people may be exposed, it is important to distinguish the severely exposed individuals (> or =1 gray), who require early medical treatment, from those less exposed. The aim of our study was to develop a quick population triage method based on automated micronucleus (MN) scoring. MATERIALS AND METHODS Using the MN software module developed by MetaSystems specifically for the Metafer4 platform, about 60 blood samples can be… CONTINUE READING
