Many radioactive biological samples measured by liquid scintillation counting techniques are not readily soluble in the commonly used solvents of liquid scintillation cocktails. Special solubilizers are required to obtain a homogeneous system for reproducible measurement of the radioactive sample.


  • Ideal for tissue homogenates, whole blood and high water content samples such as plasma, brain and polyacrylamide gels
  • Rate of solubilization can be increased by warming up to 50-60°C
  • Minimum chemiluminescence produced

Application Note

LSC Sample Preparation and Counting of Biological Samples

In Liquid Scintillation Counting (LSC), preparationof biological samples has always been treated as aspecial case because of the difficulties associated with their preparation for counting. In general, all biological samples contain components not generallyfound in any other sample types, therefore it is of benefit to understand the composition of these samples to fully understand the need for the slightly unusual sample preparation methods.

LSC in Practice: LSC Technical Tips from PerkinElmer

Filter counting, or solid support counting as it is sometimes known, is probably best described as heterogeneous counting. The main difference between heterogeneous counting and homogeneous countingis that heterogeneous counting relies on 2 p geometry while 4 p geometry applies to homogeneous counting. An explanation of the terms 2 p and 4 p geometry is needed to appreciate the differences between the two counting techniques. I
