Abstract: Hirosaki University has been designated by the Nuclear Regulation Authority as an Advanced Radiation Emergency Medical Support Center (AREMSC) and as a hospital which accepts radiation emergency medical patients in Japan. In radiation emergency medicine, blood analysis is required to check the patientʼs health and estimate radiation dose. As the medical staff in Nuclear Emergency Core Hospitals and Nuclear Emergency Medical Cooperative Institutions do not have much experience in requesting biodosimetry laboratories for chromosome analysis, they are often unsure about which blood collection tubes to use and how blood should be stored after collection. Thus, AREMSC in Hirosaki University has prepared and provided guidelines for blood collection, management and shipping. Furthermore, AREMSC in Hirosaki University has also been developing young human resources as one of AREMSCs in Japan. AREMSC in Hirosaki University has provided training materials for developing human resources in biological dose evaluation, which is one of the main missions in AREMSC. This article introduces an overview of the guidelines for blood collection, management and shipping, and an excerpt of training materials in cytogenetic biodosimetry at AREMSC in Hirosaki University.
