There are many sources of ultraviolet (UV) radiation in the workplace. Action spectrum data are necessary for establishing methods to evaluate UV hazards. We determined a UV action spectrum for cell killing in the human lens epithelial cell line SRA 01/04 by measuring the viability of cells exposed to UV at 8 different wavelengths ranging from 259.5 to 300.5 nm in a carefully designed and controlled experiment. The action spectrum based on LD50 is nearly flat or falls slightly with wavelength… CONTINUE READING
