To work with Radiation in the NDMRB you must:
Contact our Senior Radiation Protection Supervisor (SRPS) -Zuzana Bencokova and Radiation Protection Supervisor (RPS) - Elena Brenna. The radiation suite is managed and cared for by the SRPS and RPS, therefore to work in the suite you must make them aware of the protocol you intend to carry out and which isotopes (open sources) you are planning to use.
Attend a safety lecture ( (Radiation Safety for Laboratory Workers - compulsory) and read the NDMRB Local Rules 2019.
Minimising the environmental impact of work with
radioactivity (BAT statement)
Protocol and the related risk assessment will be assessed by the SRPS, who will ensure that suitable limits are in place for the isotope and waste stream.
Users will then undergo a local radiation induction by the SRPS and the RPS before being given access to the suite.
Your supervisor will train you in the protocols you will use.
- There are two irradiators available for use. Contact the Oncology Department (James Thompson) or the John Radcliffe Hospital (Adam Lambert or Joanna Hester) to register. Users will then undergo an induction and training before being given access to the irradiator.
