To meet the increasing use of radioactive materials in medicine and industry, the British Atomic Energy Research Establishment at Harwell, Berkshire, has opened an “Isotype School” with a six weeks’ course.

The Isotype Division is outside the security limits of Harwell, and produces isotypes as a biproduct of the atomic pile. Dr. J.E. Johnson, heed of the Isotype Division at Harwell, demonstrates the use of a remote control handling

device through protective Walls. Representatives of industry and medicine are among the students.
