The environmental health corporation PerkinElmer has announced the new Quantulus™ GCT and Tri-Carb® 4810TR, 4910TR and 5110TR liquid scintillation counters (LSCs). These benchtop LCSs are able to detect low levels of radioactivity and perform advanced particle discrimination. They also feature reduced counting times for detecting alpha, beta and gamma radioactivity.
The Quantulus™ GCT LSC identifies and measures very low concentrations of man-made, cosmogenic and other natural radionuclides. It is suited for environmental monitoring and contamination control, which require detection of ultra low-level alpha and beta radioactivity. The Tri-Carb® LSCs perform particle discrimination with reduced counting times for detecting very small amounts of alpha, beta and gamma radioactivity.
PerkinElmer has added the Quantulus™ GCT and Tri-Carb® LSCs to its already extensive portfolio of reagents, cocktails and assays to support radiometric detection. The new LCSs will greatly help to discover new drug pathways, determine contamination levels in the environment, and comply with safety regulations.
