Biochemical alterations in human cells irradiated with alpha particles delivered by macro- or microbeams.


Irradiation of individual cell nuclei with charged-particle microbeams requires accurate identification and localization of cells using Hoechst staining and UV illumination before computer-monitored localization of each cell. Using Fourier-transform infrared microspectroscopy (FT-IRM), we investigated whether the experimental conditions used for cell… (More)
