The Compact Automatic Oxidizer
The OX-501 is for quench free sample preparation of biological samples which are labelled with 3H or 14C. If the samples are dual labelled, the 3H and 14C are automatically separated.
The OX-501 works on the principle of catalytic combustion. The sample is combusted at 900°C in a flow of oxygen within the horizontal combustion tube. The high combustion temperature guarantees the quick and complete combustion of aqueous solutions, blood, wet filters and damp surface swabs.
OX-501 offers the user the following advantages:
Quench free samples
It is a fully automatic system with electronic controls for gas flow, scintillator volume and combustion time.
