Sample Oxidiser / Pyrolyser cocktails & reagents
In a Sample
Oxidiser or a Pyrolyser the sample is combusted at >900°C in an oxygen-rich atmosphere. Any carbon-14 present is converted into
14CO2 and Tritium is converted into 3H2O. The 14CO2 is trapped in an amine and then a cocktail is added to make this solution
suitable for LSC counting. The 3H2O is taken up in a
separate specialist cocktail.
This is a high capacity carbon dioxide absorber used to trap radioactive carbon dioxide produced in sample oxidisers and pyrolysers and will accept up to a maximum of 4.8mM CO2/ml.
This is the specialist cocktail for counting radioactive carbon dioxide captured in CarbonTrap.
This is the specialist cocktail for counting Tritium using a sample oxidizer
