Oxidize your samples with confidence
Introducing the Hidex 600 OX Oxidizer, a fully computer controlled automated catalytic combustion unit for all organic sample preparation. The system uses industrial standard logic and mass flow controllers for fully reliable sample combustion process.
Ideal for variety of samples such as: soil, tissue, plant material, oil and concrete from nuclear decommissioning of power plants.
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 ¹⁴C liquid scintillation counting (LSC). In tritium application, water vapor is condensed into vial containing cocktail for tritium LSC measurement.
Up to six samples can be loaded in one go. Operator has walk a way freedom and not tied up like older manual systems.
Sample boats are placed on high purity quartz ladles. Hidex 600 OX Oxidizer is compatible with both disposable and reusable sample boats.
