Fundamentals of biological dosimetry are described in the International Atomic Energy Agency manual, but all over the world each laboratory is using its own protocol. To test the influence of protocol variations, some blood samples were exposed to 0.5 Gy of gamma radiation and mitotic index and dicentric rates were measured under different experimental conditions. The effect of seven parameters [bromodeoxyuridin (BrdU), phytohaemagglutinin and colcemid concentrations, blood and medium volumes… CONTINUE READING
