nuclear dust

Dermatology
A term of art referring to bits of nuclear debris seen in the stratum corneum in dermatitis herpetiformis.
 
Pathology
A term of art referring to the abundant basophilic granularity seen in acutely inflamed and necrotic tissue, which corresponds to karyorrhectic nuclear debris from blown-up neutrophils and, if infected, bacteria. Nuclear dust is a characteristic finding in leukocytoclastic vasculitis or a ruptured abscess.

Public health
A term of art referring to radioactive particulate matter that arose from an errant nuclear reactor, which can settle in remote places.

Renal pathology
A term referring to the 1–3 mm fragments of rounded basophilic debris derived from partially degraded hematoxylin bodies, classically seen in focal proliferative glomerulonephritis (class III) lupus nephritis.

At the Chernobyl nuclear accident site, EKOR(TM) has demonstrated its ability to protect the environment from nuclear waste contamination by encapsulating a large nuclear fuel-containing mass underneath Chernobyl's failed reactor and covered nuclear dust and debris on a main pump room floor inside the sarcophagus for over two years without any reported deterioration in the EKOR(TM) containment.
