A major ductwork and waste system in plastics for aggressive and radio-active laboratory effluents [PE]


Building services

Plastic Pipes Conference Association # 1974 Southampton


The subject of this paper "A major ductwork and waste system for aggressive and radioactive laboratory effluents", indicates that this is not a description of a conventional system but that the special requirements imposed in the operation of a radiochemical laboratory must be taken into account. Why in fact are such laboratories, which also involve higher building expenditure because of the added risks, built ?

In the development of new medicines the fields of pharmacokinetics and metabolism(2)are playing a considerable part. The registration authorities in various countries are imposing increasingly stringent requirements as to the scope and accuracy of the tests carried out. At the same time new substances are being developed which demonstrate their action only in extremely small doses. Thus a precise answer to this question can only be given using radioactively marked substances.
