  • Single 3” NaI well-type detector
  • Automatic carousel conveyor with continuous loading
  • Compact design 65cm width
  • Scalable conveyor carousel for various sample capacities
  • Barcode reader of the racks
  • Optional automatic balance for sample weighing

Hidex Automatic Gamma counter is the premier measurement system for high energy gamma emitters, as well as low level gamma activity and environmental samples, suitable especially well for sophisticated research in nuclear medicine and PET applications. The counter is equipped with a 3 inch thallium activated sodium-iodine crystal to support gamma counting and a modern MS Windows based touch screen operated interface for user-friendly operation. The design with small footprint and low weight allows integration into small laboratories. The instrument has 55 mm internal and on conveyor side 80mm Pb shielding design for low background and minimal interference.

An optional automated sample balance with excellent weighing technology and weighing resolutions as low as 0.1 mg provides high precision and efficient measuring. There is no external radioactive standard needed. Transportation and movement of standard instrument does not require licenses for handling radioactivity and decommissioning is easy and low cost.

  • Calibration source to be placed manually in a sample rack to perform calibration
  • Automatic balance for sample weighing
  • Sample specific Barcode reader (availabe Q2 2015)
  • Foot pedal for accurate timing of short lived isotopes
  • Extended energy range up to 3 MeV
