Abstract

Mass spectrometry identifies atomic and molecular species and relative concentrations in a given atmosphere. The analysis of the composition and of the atmosphere variations in a batch system, that contains a suspension of yeast cells or lymphocytes, allows to identify and to track cell metabolic processes. Such a technique has proven to be efficient in radiobiology experiments to investigate soft X-ray non-nuclear damages, as complementary to other physical and chemical assessments.
