Description: This 40-hour training program is specifically designed to train researchers and safety officers with the necessary skills to implement a radiation protection program in the biotechnology, university, hospital, or medical laboratory setting. This program will focus primarily on the radionuclides most commonly used in biotechnology, hospitals, and medical facilities (i.e., C-14, H-3, S-35, P-32/33, Ni-63, Tc-99m, and radioiodines), as well as the techniques used to assay these radionuclides in laboratory radiation safety surveys.

Nuclear Data Resources

The Idaho National Engineering & Environmental Laboratory has established the INEEL Gamma-Ray Spectrometry Center to provide  integrated technical reference material of gamma energies, decay spectra and actual spectral data in catalog form.
The objective of the Network is to provide the information to users in a convenient, readily available form. To this end, online data services have been established at three of the centers: the National Nuclear Data Center (NNDC), the Nuclear Data Section of the International Atomic Energy Agency (NDS), and the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency Data Bank (NEADB). Some information is also available at the NNDC and NEADB WorldWideWeb sites.

The Chart of the Nuclides
The Chart of the Nuclides presents the key nuclear properties of every known stable and radioactive form of each element. The Chart was developed by the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory (KAPL). KAPL is operated for the Naval Reactors Program of the Department of Energy by Bechtel Marine Propulsion Corporation. The Chart has been compiled, edited and periodically revised by Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory scientists since 1956.
