Bioassay Program

Thyroid and/or urine bioassays are performed for personnel for whom internal exposure to radioactive materials is considered most likely.

Bioassays are normally performed for:

  • Users of unbound radioiodine.
  • Individuals using large quantities of radioactive materials as determined by EHS.
  • Individuals with accidental or suspected intake of radioactive material.

Anyone who suspects that they have had an intake of radioactive material through any pathway (for example, ingestion, inhalation or skin absorption) should contact EHS immediately at 335-8501 so that an evaluation can be performed.

Contact information and areas of expertise can be found on the Contact Us page.
