To examine the thermalization and light production (i.e. chemiluminescense) of mammalian cell lysates in vitro during 2450 MHz microwave irradiation. Cells were treated before with a special chemical compound (DALM) (abbreviation: DALM = diazoluminomelanin, an radiofrequency-sensitive luminescent polymer).
|Exposure duration||10 min|
|power||20 W||maximum||cf. remarks||-||0, 3, 20 W|
The lysate of HL-60 cell line containing DALM showed an increased chemiluminescense with inreased temperature and microwave power input, respectively.
The data illustrate the potential of using DALM synthesized in mammalian cells as a photon-emitting sensor of absorbed energy in radiofrequency irradiation dosimetry.
