A gamma counter with effortless operation and integrated applications
The Hidex AMG gamma counter is specifically designed to meet the needs of modern laboratories. With the AMG's touchscreen operated software and application-focused design, the instrument delivers effortless workflow and provides results quickly and efficiently.
An optimal lead shield design and a single 3" NaI well-type detector provide superb counting efficiency, low backgrounds and minimal interference from samples on the conveyor.
Facilitating efficiency and workflow
- Add easy quality control through Ge/Ga elution ratio measurements.
- High efficiency and suitable shielding for PET research with isotopes such as O-15, F-18 and Zr-89.
- Automatic decay correction to a defined time stamp.
- Includes easy to use diagnostic tool for traditional radio-immunoassays.
- Automatic data export into user definable format.
- Ensure radio safety through ready-set gamma counting measurements.
- The AMG now features an optional QR code reader for compliant sample identification, with barcodes read directly from the vial cap to improve traceability from sample to result.
A unique combination with the onboard balance
The optional onboard balance offers unprecedented convenience and reliability. It saves the operator valuable time by speeding up work flow.
Results are reported automatically as activity per mass or volume providing increased dependability.
The Hidex AMG with the precise and easy to use onboard balance is a perfect platform for bio-distribution studies.
Going beyond with the extended MCA
The Hidex AMG is equipped with a powerful linear multichannel analyser for detailed spectrum analysis. Never before has there been a possibility to measure isotopes with an energy range of up to 4,000 keV.
21 CFR part 11 compliance
The Hidex AMG can be used in a 21 CFR part 11 compliant manner thanks to LabLogic's Laura radiochromatography software. The AMG 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.
An external touchscreen PC with Windows 11-operated software features an easy to use graphical interface and live spectrum display.
Software beyond comparison
The Hidex AMG is ready to run with immediate access to your methods. Results are calculated straight into Bq or Ci values and include automatic storage of the full energy spectrum to ensure no data is lost.
The software has a built-in algorithm to compensate for spectral pulse pile up of high activity samples.
Besides traditional printing, data is easily exported into Excel and other formats to a user defined location. Sample ID import ensures easy handling of data.
3 inch NaI well type crystal provides superb gamma counting efficiency.
Optimised lead shielding ensures low background and minimal interference from samples on the conveyor.
Powerful multichannel analyser for detailed spectrum analysis.
Optional onboard balance means samples can be weighed automatically and results reported as activity per mass or volume.
For short lived isotopes there is an optional foot pedal for precise timing of the sampling. The software automatically calculates decay corrected activities.
All results, raw data and calculated data exported directly at the touch of a button.

Rotherham General Hospital, UK
Hidex AMG at Rotherham General Hospital
Rotherham General Hospital recently took delivery of a Hidex Automatic Gamma Counter, where the Medical Physics Department has used the instrument to monitor patients’ kidney activity by measuring glomerular filtration rates (GFR).
We spoke with Duncan White, Consultant Physicist and Head of Medical Physics, to find out how he and his team have found the automatic gamma counter and the support they’ve received from LabLogic.
