Medical Unit

There are two laboratories in the Medical Unit; Molecular Genetics Laboratory  and Internal Dosimetry Laboratory.

In the Molecular Genetics Laboratory (MGL) various studies are carried out for the measuring radiation dependent DNA damage. These studies are being done using cytogenetic and molecular genetic methods. Mainly two methods have been used in our laboratory “Comet assay and  gene expression profiles”

Internal Dosimetry Laboratory (IDL) is established for controlling safety of workers who might be contaminated by radionuclides   in nuclear power plant, nuclear research center etc. This laboratory is used to obtain measurement data on levels of radionuclids in the whole body, in organs or body fluids and their rates of excretion, to be used as a basis for assessing intakes and for calculating committed tissue or organ equivalent doses and committed effective doses.
