Major improvements in liquid scintillation counter technology
23rd September 2010
The Hidex 300SL, an automatic liquid scintillation counter that is highly popular with both large and small nuclear counting laboratories, has been the subject of hardware and software upgrades that enhance both its capability and versatility.
The upgrades include a new stacker system that enhances the unique tray system of the Hidex 300SL in which the vials are placed on a sample tray in a matrix of either 8x12 7ml vials or 5x8 20ml vials. This means the trays can also be used in sample preparation instruments such as liquid handling stations. The stacker extends this capacity to 960 and 400 samples respectively.
Live spectrum display and multi-parameter handling are new software features that make it simple to adapt the Hidex 300SL for new applications such as a metrology version and a low background version.
Southern Scientific provides a comprehensive range of radiation measuring instruments for use both in the laboratory and in the field.
