Pioneering since 1993

Hidex was founded in 1993 by ambitiously pioneering Jukka Haaslahti. Soon the experienced engineers Juhani Aalto and Timo Oikari joined the trio which set out on an ambitious target: to develop the world’s first portable liquid scintillation counter. As a result the Hidex Triathler was launched and company gained name in the field of liquid scintillation counters.

Over the years Hidex has introduced technological innovations in microplate reading, gamma counters, nuclear medicine and PET radiochemistry.

  • 1st portable liquid scintillation counter
  • 1st microplate reader to combine radiometric and non radiometric detection technologies
  • 1st commercial automated TDCR liquid scintillation counter
  • 1st commercial online infusion system for oxygen-15 water with disposable filters
  • 1st automatic gamma counter with an on board balance

Today more than 4 000 Hidex precision instruments are at service in leading laboratories worldwide as well as in some of the hardest conditions on the planet. Jungles and deserts, oil platforms and ocean-going vessels – even submarines are no challenge for Hidex instruments.
