Presentation

Manufactures, on order, radioactivity measurement devices for foodstuff samples and installations for scintygraph investigation of glandular type organs.
Operates and maintains a near-adequate capability of field radiological monitoring, including the expertise, instrumentation and manpower, and employs it (i) in the routine onsite radiological monitoring; (ii) in the investigative monitoring of outstanding nuclear risk areas nationwide, including, as appropriate, Danube's Romanian bank facing the Bulgarian nuclear power plant at Kozloduy, the Western Carpathian nuclear waste repository at Baita and others; (iii) in utilitarian investigations like, e.g., soil erosion monitoring in Eastern Moldavia; the evolvement of the long-lived radio-isotope legacy of Chernobyl; (iv) in appointed missions relating to point-wise nuclear waste repositories, v. the Bucharest beltway ancient forts; incidents in the trans-border cargo traffic; incidental exposure suspicions (scrap from radioisotope-monitored metallurgical fondries etc.)
Evaluates biological responses associated with exposures to ionizing radiation and other physical and chemical stress factors, including (i) cytotoxic effects on cells (micronucleus induction, chromatide breaks, DNA synthesis, apoptosis induction) (ii) biochemical modifications (lipid peroxidation level, enzyme activities); (iii) study of the membrane alterations.
