Half Life of radioactive insulin

  1. Sep 25, 2006 #1
    In my assay of 50uL of 125-I-insulin I have 20,000 cpm at the expiry date. The half life of 125-I-Insulin is 60 days. So how can I calculate how many counts a 50uL sample of 125-I-labelled insulin would contained at 4 months past the expiry date?
