Scintillation Vial, Caps Separate

  • For scintillation counting and standard storage applications
  • Packaged in convenient utility trays, for easy sample storage
  • Use vials with PP cap and metal foil / pulp liner forapplications involving hydrocarbons, oils, ketones and alcohol. Not recommended for acids or alkalis.
  • Urea caps with PE cone liner offer superior torque retention and excellent sealing characteristics
  • Background counts are consistent and low, ultraviolet transmission is high
Product Overview
Liquid scintillation counting is a method used for determination of the activity of low energy radioisotopes, mostly beta-emitting and alpha-emitting isotopes. Popular fields of application are the life sciences, environmental analysis as well as chemical and physical sciences.

The sample of interest is mixed with a liquid scintillation cocktail (e.g. zinc sulfide) and placed in transparent or translucent vials, which are then loaded into the liquid scintillation counter. Beta particles released from the isotopic sample interact with the scintillation cocktail and, as a result, photons of light are produced. The intensity of the measured light signal is proportional to the energy of the beta particle. Scintillation vials are designed to be used in scintillation counting but also enjoy great popularity as a vessel for standard storage applications.
