Title (EN) AN APPARATUS FOR COUNTING LIQUID SCINTILLATION SAMPLES
(FR) COMPTEUR DE SCINTILLATIONS D'ECHANTILLONS LIQUIDES
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention shows a new apparatus in the field of liquid scintillation counting. The conventional liquid scintillation counters have been designed to measure samples in vials, which volume is typically 6 or 20 milliliters. In addition a special purpose liquid scintillation counter, the Betaplate is adapted to measure 6 samples at a time deposited on a multi-well sample plate with fixed format and sample well volume. For avoiding the limitations of the above-mentioned liquid scintillation counters, when samples are deposited on various type multi-well sample plates, a new apparatus is shown which is adapted to measure simultaneously one or several liquid scintillation or corresponding samples deposited in sample plates (10, 20) with various sample well volumes belonging to a preselected assortment of different multi-well sample plate types, each having a characteristic two dimensional array of sample wells.
(FR) Nouvel appareil utilisé dans le domaine du comptage de scintillations liquides. Les compteurs de scintillations liquides classiques ont été conçus pour mesurer des échantillons se trouvant dans des flacons dont le volume est habituellement compris entre 6 et 20 millilitres. De plus, un compteur de scintillations liquides à usage particulier, le Bétaplate est adapté pour mesurer 6 échantillons en même temps, déposés sur une plaque d'échantillons à puits multiples d'un format et d'un volume de puits d'échantillons fixes. Afin d'éviter les limites des compteurs de scintillations liquides précités, lorsque l'on dépose des échantillons sur diverses plaques d'échantillons du type à puits multiples, on a prévu un appareil mesurant simultanément une ou plusieurs scintillations de liquide ou des échantillons correspondant déposés dans des plaques d'échantillons (10, 20) présentant divers volumes de puits d'échantillons appartenant à un assortiment présélectionné de types de plaques d'échantillons à puits multiples différents, présentant chacun un réseau bidimensionnel caractéristique de puits d'échantillons.
