Abstract

A new method for estimating Uranium 238 was developed from the old method by using fresh blood samples instead of burned blood ash prepared discs. Blood was used in sampling on the polymer CR-39, after irradiation with neutrons and calculating traces of fissions. This new method changed the conventional old method into more fast and effective method.
