Just my opinion. Make an incident report out on it just in case you have a problem in the future. Make sure it does not happen again.
Try not to worry. Oleander
Thanks for the reply. The chemistry department uses that equipment so I'm not too sure but it's used to see fluorescence on silica or something.
I was just wondering if the wavelength is similar to that of exposure to solar radiation, that way I would be less worried because it will be like sitting in the sun for 2 hours.
I was not red from exposure and the chemist told me to make incident report if I get a rash or something.
I'm new there and a payed intern, don't want to make a big deal out of it. I guess I'll ask my supervisor after he comes back from vacation.
