nuclide

 [noo´klīd]
a species of atom characterized by the charge, mass, number, and quantum state of its nucleus, and capable of existing for a measurable lifetime (usually more than 10−10 sec).

nu·clide

(nū'klīd),
A particular (atomic) nuclear species with defined atomic mass and number.

nuclide

/nu·clide/ (noo´klīd) a species of atom characterized by the charge, mass, number, and quantum state of its nucleus, and capable of existing for a measurable lifetime (usually more than 10−10 sec.).

nuclide

[no̅o̅′klīd]
Etymology: L, nucleus, nut kernel
a species of atom characterized by the constitution of its nucleus, in particular by the number of protons and neutrons. Thus, Co-59 and Co-60 are both isotopes of cobalt and are each nuclides. Co-60 is a radionuclide because it undergoes radioactive decay.

nuclide

A single isotope; an atom with a specific atomic number, mass number and energy level.

nu·clide

(nū'klīd)
A particular (atomic) nuclear species with defined atomic mass and number.

nuclide

An artificially produced radioactive isotope of an element. Many of these are used in medicine as tracers or for RADIOTHERAPY.

nuclide

a species of atom characterized by the charge, mass, number and quantum state of its nucleus, and capable of existing for a measurable lifetime (usually more than 10−10 s).
