FAQ
Rendering microorganisms inactive by subjecting the object to be sterilized to a beam or field of concentrated energy is known as radiation sterilised.
Sterilizing equipment: high energy, electromagnetic waves are called gamma rays; they can only be stopped by copious lead. These rays could easily pass through equipment in medical centres, for example syringes. As the gamma rays can do this, they can kill living tissue such as bacteria and viruses.
Geiger- Muller tube: used to detect radiation through the central electrode inside the tube itself. The casing of the tube is connected to a voltage supply, and when gamma, beta, or alpha radiation goes in a tube it will make ions in the gas.
