The exercise is oriented on the training of students in laboratory praxis and work with open radioactive sources through basic lab operations such as pipetting, extraction and chromatography techniques. Training is also focused on decontamination of surfaces and clean-up of the accident, work behind shielding and in a glove box.
Seminar contents:
1. Regulations for the work in laboratory and with open IR sources.
2. Pipetting techniques, work with plastic shielding
3. Preparation and dilution of radioactive solution, work in glove box
4. Contamination check, wipes, surface decontamination
5. Laboratory techniques of liquid extraction and their comparison
6.Radionuclide generator
