Safety studies on the risks of chemicals will benefit everyone

Chemical safety has recently aroused a lot of debate. It is alarming that the effects of many chemicals on health and the environment are not yet known. The European Union has taken up this problem, and the objective of the current chemicals policy is to assess the risks of all existing and new chemicals, which would shift more of the responsibility for products safety to manufacturers. Tero Karhi reports.


Despite the major advances in the development and acceptance of non-isotopic molecular biology techniques, it is still apparent that radiolabelled chemicals will be needed in the laboratory to obtain the necessary sensitivity required of certain procedures.
