In Vitro Research and Development
From the outset the work of the Institute was divided into that where a specimen from a patient (blood, urine CSF, et.) was the basic material for study and that where investigations were carried out on a patient in person: “in vivo” studies. In routine diagnostic tests both were often required. For example in thyroid function testing, not only was the thyroid uptake of an administered dose of radioactive iodine measured but also a blood sample was obtained and the radioactive iodine bound to the blood proteins measured using an end-window Geiger-Muller(GM) counter. However, the research projects fell reasonably into one or other group.
