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.

Overcoming Chemical and Color Quench with Bile Acid Samples

A researcher observed a count rate that was lower than expected with a tSIE of 300-400. The sample was bile acid that had been recovered from mouse feces. Water was used to rehydrate the feces.
