Annotation -
Lab training introduces basic safety measures and practical habits for work in radiochemical laboratory. It practically demonstrates Geiger-Müller tube and within individual task students will familiarize with the determination of half-time decay of isotopes using the scintillation method, RIA or IRMA method, and applications in HPLC and TLC chromatography. It includes also an excursion to specialized workplaces for nuclear medicine.
