Designed for those using unsealed radioactive materials in tracer quantities, this course has an emphasis on practical contamination control in the laboratory.
Special attention is given to your particular use of radiochemicals, the regulatory requirements for ensuring radiological safety, and risk assessment of radionuclides in research.
An interactive video of a bench procedure requires you to identify shortfalls for later discussion, and evening syndicates study real laboratory-scale incidents for reporting on the following day.
