Abstract
32P measurements of urine samples and internal dose assessments were conducted for workers in life science laboratories. A procedure for sample pre-treatment was established and validation was performed to exclude interference and to detect P-32 levels accurately. The detection conditions for Cherenkov radiation were evaluated and the accuracy of Cherenkov radiation measurements validated. The analytical and measurement procedures were applied to urine samples collected from 11 workers from life sciences laboratories. The results of the measurements generally indicated very low background radiation levels, but daily urine samples from two workers were above the minimum detectable activity. The P-32 concentrations for two of the workers were 29.3 +/- 10.4 Bq center dot d(-1) and 24.1 +/- 11.8 Bq center dot d(-1), respectively, at intake levels of 4.12 kBq and 2.61 kBq. The effective doses for these two workers were 4.6 mu Sv and 2.9 mu Sv. Overall, the results indicate very low levels of radioactivity, except for cases related to specific working conditions.
