Abstract

Тhe prompt and at the same time accurate detection of hazardous agents like radioactive, harmful and explosive materials remains an imperative condition for successful battle against emerging security challenges like terroristic and military threats with CBRN agents. The last represent detrimental compounds, materials and chemicals that are a serious danger for people. Some of them lead to negative effects during their exploitation while others induce long-term post-effects which often leave adverse impact on human health generations after. Genotoxins are one of the worst probabilities as they induce damage in the molecule of DNA causing mutations which when unrepaired could lead to cancer or even to death of the organism. Moreover, these mutations could also be transmitted to future generations with the same devastating consequences. Consequently, genotoxins, especially those emitted during terroristic acts, military operations or during training activities are a real threat for human health and bring the necessity for development of fast operating and sensitive devices for real-time field employable genotoxicity inspection.
