Sulfur 35

Sulfur 35


Characteristics

Characteristics

  • Radioactive half-life: 87.4 days

  • Decay mechanism: Beta emission

  • Energy:Emax = 167 keV

    Eavg = 49 keV

  • Contamination monitoring: Thin window Geiger-Mueller detector, liquid scintillation counter for wipe surveys

  • Dosimetry: Urinalysis

Volatility

Volatility

  • Radiolysis of S-35 labelled amino acids may lead to the release of S-35 labelled volatile impurities. Delivery vials should therefore be opened in a fume hood


Stabilizers

Stabilizers

  • The addition of stabilizers (buffers) will reduce, but not eliminate, the evolution of S-35 volatiles from tissue culture media. Incubators should be checked for contamination after using S-35 methionine or other volatile compounds.


Differentiation difficulty

Differentiation Difficulty

  • S-35 may be difficult to distinguish from C-14. If both nuclides are being used in the same laboratory, establish controls to ensure they are kept separate. If "unknown" contamination is found, treat it as C-14.
