Furthermore, says Harry Moseley, a photobiology professor at the University of Dundee, "Work carried out in vitro can be helpful to show the direct effect of UV radiation on the cells, [but] it doesn't tell us how the body deals with any damage to the cells.
The minimeter is suited for lamp and LED characterization, color analysis, photostability testing, photobiology and photochemistry.
The damage seemed to increase as it went through the epidermis and we think that is due to a form of backscatter in other words, the damage goes through and is somehow reflected back," ABC Science quoted Dr Antony Young, a professor of experimental photobiology at King's College, as saying.
