Hidex 600 OX Oxidizer Standard

For C14 and H3 analysis

Hidex 600 OX Oxidizer is a fully computer controlled automated sample combustion instrument dedicated for liquid scintillation counting (LSC) sample preparation. Solid organic sample is transformed into homogenous and clear liquid sample for LSC measurement. Effective and accurate sample preparation with Hidex 600 OX is ideal for variety of samples such as: soil, tissue, plant, oil and concrete. Hidex 600 OX Oxidizer Basic is dedicated to C-14 and H-3 single-labelled samples.

Hidex 600 OX Oxidizer Standard

For C14 and H3 analysis

Advanced Sample Preparation

  • Oxidize your samples with confidence
  • Ideal for samples such as soil, tissue, plant material, oil, and concrete
  • Oxidize up to 6 samples in one automated run
  • Automated gas tightness test before every sample combustion
  • Combusted samples ready for liquid scintillation counting
  • Oxygen input flow regulation

On Point Sample Preperation

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 away 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.

Automated gas tightness test is performed before every sample combustion for ensuring optimal C-14 and H-3 recovery and safe working environment. Low C-14 level sample amount can be increased by combusting up to 6 sample aliquots into one LSC vial which enable higher LSC accuracy.

  • Hidex's fight against global warming

    There exist an urgent need for scalable climate change mitigation tools in agriculture. One such tool is the use of winter cover crops instead of leaving the soil bare after harvesting. During growth and after their termination, cover crops contribute to soil organic carbon sequestration.
