This page provides background information for the teacher.

Following on from the introductory e-learning, this section is to be used by teachers to run the "Ionlab" experiment in class.

In this course, you will be introduced to radioisotopes and learn how these can be used to treat cancer. This online course will help prepare you for your next chemistry lesson,  where you will produce a medical radioisotope using column chromatography.

This short course will cover:

  • Radioisotopes
  • Chromatography techniques
  • Ionlab experimental procedure

Please review the material before your chemistry lesson.
