    Abstract

    This paper reports on the development of a simple autoradiographic technique for the selective isolation of Cs-137-sorbing microorganisms from primary isolation plates. Studies on organic soils contaminated with Cs-137 following the Chernobyl nuclear accident in May 1986 have resulted in the isolation of fungi and bacteria capable of sorbing Cs-137 directly from solid media.
