Mini-Scan TLC Imaging Scanner
The former BIOSCAN Analytical Instruments have been used in nuclear medicine and radiopharmacy laboratories for over 25 years. Their reputation for providing low-cost, easy-to-use and reliable equipment is unmatched by any other company. Thousands of laboratories around the world rely on BIOSCAN Analytical Instruments to meet their daily quality control requirements as well as to aid researchers in developing new compounds.
The Mini-Scan is a versatile TLC scanner for the detection of radioisotopes on narrow strips and plates; Interchangeable detectors allow the measurement of all isotopes including:
- F-18, I-125, I-131, Tc-99m, and In-111 using NaI scintillator crystals with photomultiplier tubes.
- C-14 and all high-energy beta and alpha emitters using plastic scintillator with photomultiplier tubes. Dual Use: Flow-Count based detectors and electronics enable the Mini-Scan, in combination with Bioscan’s flow cells and shieldingsystems, to be used as a radio-HPLC detector. The dual channel FC-2000 enables simultaneous use of HPLC and TLC detectors.
