Hidex Sense Beta

Microplate radiometric assays

For every assay in the lab

  • Ready to use with minimal setup
  • Effortless operation with modern software user interface
  • Compatibility with stacker system to give high sample throughput.

High performance, compact and sensitive microplate reader

The Hidex Sense Beta supports all common scintillation assays and plates, such as cocktail based assays, filter plates, filtermats utilizing the Hidex Filtermat Adapter, Solid scintillators, e.g. LumaPlate®, FlashPlates®, MeltiLex® and Scintillation Proximity Assays. In addition, the counter features luminescence technology for exceptionally demanding luminescence assays

Astonishing user experience

The user interface is touchscreen operated with quick access to favorite assays. The software, which is independently top rated on the international System Usability Scale (SUS), is exceptionally easy to use, and assumes truly minimal user training.

All results are stored in the software database, and can be exported to Excel at user demand or automatically after the run.

The Sense Beta user interface can also be operated in “office” mode for off-line data and assay template handling. Data management on several workstations is further supported with convenient data transfer functionality and free rights for an unlimited number of users.

Optimized design

The automatic detector microplate touch control ensures optimal detection geometry with minimal cross-talk. Time resolved LSC functionality for background reduction, ensures optimal liquid scintillation assay results. The Hidex Sense Beta Microplate Reader is very compact, only 8” (20cm) wide. When not in use, the instrument hibernates automatically, saving energy and generating less heat in the environment.

Wide range of options

  • Microplate stacker featuring capacity for up to 25 pcs of 96 well microplates and light protected magazines for light sensitive assays. Barcode reader enables plate identification and versatile mix of separate assays in the same batch.

  • Automation service with industrial standard dotNET interface offers easy integration with most robot systems available on the market.

  • Integrated dispensers for fast kinetics, flash luminescence assays, or dual addition assays.
