Abstract

Accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) is the most sensitive, safe and precise analytical method for quantifying long-lived isotope in biomedical research with animals as well as human beings. In Korea, AMS Laboratory has been operating successfully for years measuring especially archeological samples for 14 C dating. In this year, a biological sample pretreatment facility was setup and we have also started to work on biomedical applications. As a preliminary study, we have measured the natural background levels of 14 C in tissues and blood of humans and rats. The results were agreed with the other reported levels and gave stable and reproducible results within 1-2%.
