Detail Information

Our biodegradable, high flash-point liquid scintillation cocktail allows you to determine low levels of 3H in a wide range of water samples without requiring distillation. Ultima Gold™ LLT accepts up to 54% tap water, river water, rain water and even sea water, with 3H counting efficiencies of approximately 30% and with very low background levels. When used with the Tri-Carb® time-resolved low-level liquid scintillation analyzers, backgrounds are reduced even further, resulting in minimum detectable activities of less than 1.1Bq/L-1 (500 minute count time).

Features:

  • High water capacity - up to 54%
  • High counting efficiency
  • Very low background levels
  • For bioassay of urine up to 40% capacity, allowing detection levels of less than 10Bq/L-1 (500 minute count time)
  • Heavy metal radionuclide sample capacity, up to 18% of 2M HNO3, 2M HCl and 2M H3PO4 for alpha, beta and alpha/beta counting
  • No diffusion through polyethylene vials
  • Biodegradable
  • High flash-point of approximately 140°C

LSC in Practice - Counting Aqueous Samples by LSC

The primary objective of all sample preparation procedures for liquid scintillation counting (LSC) is to obtain a homogeneous solution for efficient energy transfer from the sample to the LS cocktail. Aqueous solutions are some of the simplest and most commonly found in liquid scintillation analysis. In general, they provide the environment necessary for many assays and separations, and include the most encountered solvent media for the numerous radioisotopes usedin LSC.

LSC in Practice - Measurement of 3H in Dilute Sulfuric Acid

One of PerkinElmer’s field sales engineers forwarded a request for assistance regarding the selection of the optimal cocktail for use with a sample containing 4.5 mL deionized water and 0.036 N sulfuric acid. The nuclide of interest was 3H, and polyethylene vials were used extensively in the laboratory.

Safer Cocktail Selection for Use with Potassium Chloride

One of PerkinElmer’s field representatives requested help for a researcher currently using PerkinElmer cocktails that contained toluene and xylene. The researcher hoped to “skip” two generations of cocktails and move up to PerkinElmer’s newest, ULTIMA Gold™, line of cocktail. The researcher’s primary concern was compatibility of the cocktail and sample.

Safer Cocktail for an Ethanol/Water/Ammonia Solvent Mixture

A laboratory had been under pressure to move towards the newer generation of safer liquid scintillation cocktails. Unfortunately, the sample composition of one of their targets kept giving the researchers problems. Before the lead researcher contacted PerkinElmer, they had tried PerkinElmer’s Opti-Fluor®, ULTIMAGold™ LLT, and ULTIMA Gold XR. All of the safer cocktails could incorporate each of the constituentsas indicated by their sample capacity graphs.
