Project Introduction Project Background - Rapid bioassay is required to screen large population - Po-210 and Sr-90 are two high risk but difficult radionuclides Design Objectives - Detection Limit: 10% of derived urine action level (Bq/L) based on 500 mSv committed effective dose equivalent from inhalation - Urine throughput: 120 samples in the first 48 hours per system - Feces throughput: 20 samples in the first 48 hours per system
Project Tasks Developing rapid methods for measuring Po-210 and Sr-90 in bioassay samples using traditional approach - Based on currently available techniques - Focusing on rapidness, sensitivity, accuracy, repeatability, and field deployability etc - Studying the metabolism of Po-210 Exploring the application of new materials and new technology to radiation assessment - Application of quantum dots in radiation measurement - Application of magnetic nano-parrticles in sample preparation
