FlowLogic 1:1 scintillation cocktail preferred for radio-HPLC
1 July 2008
A leading CRO recently secured a contract in which the sponsor required the use of Flowlogic 1:1 scintillation cocktail for all radio-HPLC work.
The stipulation shows the growing preference amongst metabolism scientists for Flowlogic, which has been specially formulated by LabLogic Systems to accept a wide range of mobile phase solvents at 1:1 a ratio that results in a lower usage and less liquid waste for disposal, both of which represent savings.
Flowlogic 1:1 is low viscosity and non-gelling, and mixes rapidly to form a clear emulsion suitable for a steady streamline flow at a wide range of HPLC gradients.
It is biodegradable and subject to advice on dilution rates from the local water company can sometimes be disposed of down the drain. With low toxicity, a high flash point of 145oC and almost no odour, it is also safe to handle.
