Lead 210 (Radium D) is a naturally occurring radionuclide which is frequently used in toxicological studies due to its long half-life. The use of 210Pb in tracer studies poses two problems. First, 210Pb, along with its daughters 210Bi and 210Po, presents a significant health hazard to laboratory personnel. Second, the presence of the daughter products may… CONTINUE READING
