Research Using Radionuclides

Radioactive material is commonly used in research. In biomedical research, incorporating radioactive materials into cells and other biological material allows for location and measurement of sites of interest. Sealed nuclear sources are used in analytical equipment such as gas chromatographs and liquid scintillation counters. Use of any form of radioactive material is subject to the provisions of the University Radiation Safety Program.
