In research laboratories ultraviolet radiation is widely used, particularly in photochemistry and photobiology, as a sterilizing agent and for the characterization of samples. The results of a survey conducted near several university laboratories are presented with the aim of quantifying exposure levels to UV-incoherent radiation and to assess individual risk for researchers and students. It has been shown that exposure is not negligible, especially if safety procedures are neglected and… CONTINUE READING
