Instant results whenever and wherever with the portable Hidex Triathler liquid scintillation counter and luminometer
The Hidex Triathler is a single sample liquid scintillation counter that provides fast and accurate results for several life science and environmental applications. It can count all radioisotopes including tritium in a variety of sample formats. Due to its very small size and light weight, the Triathler can be taken in the field to measure samples on the spot.
Although small, the Triathler has many advanced features such as advanced spectrum analysis using a multi-channel analyzer (MCA), Instant DPM results, single-photon luminescence counting, and optional PC control and data transfer.
Triathler in Monitoring….
The Triathler provides fast and reliable results for regulatory wipe tests in lab areas.
The Triathler has alpha-beta separation capabilities which makes it ideal to detect alpha-isotopes like Radon (222Rn) in water. It is also sensitive enough to perform monitoring of 3H in discharge water used at power plant sites.
With proper extraction techniques, the Triathler can be used to measure soil samples for contamination with any radioisotope.
Triathler in Life Sciences…
The Triathler is well suited for metabolic studies, genetic studies, cell proliferation assays, receptor-ligand assays, and other applications in biosciences. For example, using the optional plastic scintillator adapter (PSA), 32P can be measured non-destructively (without cocktail).
The Triathler is commonly used to measure growth of phytoplankton in seawater and lakes by measuring uptake of 14C.
The Triathler is ideal as an easy-to-use diagnostic tool in research for detection of beta and gamma isotopes, such as 14C and 125I.
The Triathler can be used as a high sensitivity luminometer for both glow and flash type assays, such as ATP monitoring, luciferase and bacterial measurements. An optional reagent injector is available for more demanding applications, such as kinetic measurements.
