Human keratinocytes in culture exhibit no response when exposed to short duration, low amplitude, high frequency (900 MHz) electromagnetic fields in a reverberation chamber.
Published in: Bioelectromagnetics 2011; 32 (4): 302-311
Aim of study (acc. to author)
culture dishes individually enclosed in plastic boxes; eight boxes placed inside a temperature-controlled incubator made of 8 mm thick glas, internally insulated with 20 mm thick high-density polystyrene; incubator positioned in the working zone of a 8.4 m x 6.7 m x 3.5 m mode stirred reverberation chamber (MSRC) consisting of a metal-enclosed room; antenna pointed at a room's corner
sham exposure was conducted.
