The Hidex Sense Beta is an application ready high performance multimode microplate reader, featuring Liquid Scintillation, Beta and Gamma counting, and high sensitivity luminescence in one very compact instrument.

The Hidex Sense Beta supports all common scintillation assays and plates, such as LumaPlate®, filter plates, e.g. UniFilter™, Filtermats, FlashPlates®, Solid scintillators, e.g. MeltiLex® and Scintillation Proximity Assays.

Astonishing user experience

The user interface is touchscreen operated with quick access to favorite assays. The software, which is independently top rated on the international System Usability Scale (SUS), is exceptionally easy to use, and assumes truly minimal user training.

The software includes concentration calculation with a wide range of standard curve fitting methods and replicate statistics. All results are stored in the software database, and can be exported to Excel at user demand or automatically after the run.

The Sense Beta user interface can also be operated in “office” mode for off-line data and assay template handling. Data management on several workstations is further supported with convenient data transfer functionality and free rights for an unlimited number of users.

Optimized design

The automatic detector microplate touch control ensures optimal detection geometry with minimal cross-talk. Time resolved LSC functionality for background reduction, ensures optimal liquid scintillation assay results. For exceptionally demanding luminescence assays, the low noise detector and photon counting electronics gives extreme sensitivity.

The Hidex Sense Beta Microplate Reader is very compact, only 8” (20cm) wide. When not in use, the instrument hibernates automatically, saving energy and generating less heat in the environment.

Wide range of options

The Sense Beta integrated dispenser system offers comprehensive injection procedures with true real time readout and automatic height adjustment to avoid foaming. The dispenser head is very comfortable to handle, with direct access to the injector tips for inspection, priming and rinsing.

The Hidex Sense Beta is available with digitally controlled high accuracy gas mixing system for cell viability, hypoxia and other cellular assays. The CO2 and O2 concentrations are easily managed from the touch screen. Combined with wide range temperature control, advanced shaking options, bottom read, and automatic focus adjustment, the Hidex Sense Beta is a perfect platform for live cell studies.

It’s a pity that my project is completed, because now I won’t have a chance to use the Sense
