Labeling & Analysis
Carbon dioxide labeled with 14C can be analyzed with less expensive equipment. Before the introduction of Heliprobe® System liquid scintillation beta-counters were used for analysis.
The Heliprobe® instrument provides a method for analysis that is both easy and inexpensive. Based on Geiger-Müller counters, this technique was previously impossible to use with very low levels of radioactivity, however, this method’s simple technology has become a reality through a patented invention. The possibility now exists for any clinic to have inexpensive, easy-to-use and uncomplicated analysis equipment that can be operated by a layperson.
