Safety

All general safety precautions and procedures of the Weizmann Institute should be adhered to.

Operation and maintenance of the high-voltage units are made by staff and trained technicians only. Irradiation: The x-ray source and its housing are designed to effectively prevent any radiation leakage to the surroundings, so that no specific precautions are required. Instructions regarding sudden increase of pressure and/or high-voltage breakdown are provided on site. Any safety hazards of samples brought to the lab should be reported to the staff.
