- Cells to be irradiated can be brought in tubes or dishes.
- Mice need to be brought over in covered beakers. (One-liter size covered with aluminum foil works well). No cages, please! 3-4 mice per beaker can be irradiated.
- Dose rate can be varied from .509 Gy/min. to 15.51 Gy./min.
This resource provides the opportunity for investigators to pursue an interactive approach to the determination of intrinsic radiation sensitivity. The conduct of radiation assays quantifying radiation sensitivity to ionizing radiation in vitro, as well as mathematical modeling of survival parameters are cornerstone services provided. As a corollary, the resource lends expertise to researchers studying the cell cycle control of DNA damage, and genomic instability induced by ionizing radiation both in vitro and in vivo.
