T o encourage informality, the proceedings would not be recorded and only two representatives from each company would be allowed to attend. The first scientific session was held at ICI Pharmaceuticals in May 1972, and considered topics such as the detection and measurement of labelled material in tissues, the use of radioisotopes in man and the role of g.1.c.-mass spectrometry.
