Designed to meet the needs of laboratories processing large quantities of samples, the new Hidex 600 SL is a high throughput automatic TDCR liquid scintillation counter.

NEW: The Hidex 600 SL can be used in a 21 CFR part 11 compliant manner

The Hidex 600 SL can be used in a 21 CFR part 11 compliant manner thanks to Laura software. The 600 SL can now be validated to ensure accuracy and reliability. Time-stamped audit trails are generated automatically and cannot be modified, making it easier to track end-user activity. Also in line with 21 CFR regulations, each end-user will have a unique, secure ID login and password.

Proven technology

The Hidex 600 SL uses the robust and unique triple-to-double coincidence ratio (TDCR) counting technology from the successful 300 SL series. Coupled with added sample capacity for over 500 small vials (or 210 large vials), the 600 SL can process samples at a rate which will satisfy even the most demanding production schedule.

The instrument’s software allows the user to work with an unlimited number of methods and apply them to a sample using a simple ID or barcode number. Samples are loaded in racks and as they automatically pass through the system, the instrument can scan an identification label on the vial and apply the required method accordingly.

Optional Features

The Hidex 600 SL is available with all the options of the standard model, such as powerful alpha/beta separation, low level PMT detectors, cooling unit, and internal Eu-152 reference source.

Hidex 600 SL Super Low-Level Liquid Scintillation Counting

Similar to the standard instrument the Hidex 600 SL super low-level liquid scintillation counter is equipped with additional lead shielding, low-level PMT detectors, and an active guard detector for further background reduction.

Ideal for 3H in water measurements, other low-level environmental monitoring, radiocarbon dating and biofuel verification.

New Active Guard
The Active Guard is a separate scintillator detector which measures and subtracts real-time background radiation. The guard can be turned off for high energy samples and does not interfere with alpha/beta separation.

University of Manchester, UK

The new National Nuclear User Facility RADioactive waste Management and Environmental Remediation (NNUF RADER) laboratories are co-located at the University of Manchester and will support research into characterising and understanding the behaviour of radioactive species in engineered and natural environments.

Dr Anthony Stockdale is an Experimental Officer at NNUF RADER said: 

"We chose the Hidex 600 SL due to its lower reliance on computational corrections, a high level of engagement between us and the LabLogic product specialists, and whilst only a minor consideration,  it certainly helps that the Hidex instruments are aesthetically well designed." 

"It was essential that we could analyze at the lowest level possible so environmental levels can be detected above background, so the extra shielding of the low-level version was essential for us. The large capacity of the samples will be of significant benefit in the future as we increase the user base for the facility."
