Advanced, automated and accurate Hidex 600 OX Oxidizer
ON POINT SAMPLE PREPARATION
Hidex 600 OX Oxidizer is a fully computer controlled automated catalytic combustion unit for all organic sample preparation. Solid organic sample is transformed into homogenous and clear liquid sample for LSC measurement. Effective and accurate preparation with Hidex 600 OX is ideal for variety of samples such as: soil, tissue, plant, oil and concrete from nuclear decommissioning of power plants.
Oxidize your samples with confidence and ease
Innovative and user-friendly system uses industrial standard programmable logic controllers and mass flow controllers for fully reliable sample combustion process, because only accurate results matter. Up to six samples can be loaded in one go. Operator has walk a way freedom and is not tied up like older manual systems. Sample boats are placed on high purity quartz glass ladles. Hidex 600 OX Oxidizer is compatible with both reusable and disposable sample boats.
Automated catalytic combustion
Organic sample is combusted in high temperature of 900 °C and under oxygen stream into carbon dioxide and water vapor. The carbon dioxide is absorbed directly into the liquid scintillation cocktail and the vial is ready for instant C-14 liquid scintillation counting (LSC). In tritium application, water vapor is condensed into vial containing cocktail for tritium LSC measurement.
