A number of bioassays have been developed to determine exposure to solar and artificial UV on Earth and in space. These dosimeters are based on several organisms such as phages, bacteria, cyanobacteria, flagellates, higher plants, and animal cell lines. The DLR biofilm using immobilized, dry spores of Bacillus subtilis is a robust, easy to use and reliable dosimeter which can be worn outside the clothes to determine reliable UV exposure of humans during outdoor activities. It has been used in many campaigns in Europe, Japan, Antarctica, and the high Arctic.
