In the world of chemical analysis, a scintillator is a must-have for detecting radiation properties in a myriad of compounds. Not confined to detecting just liquids, a scintillator can be a handheld device such as a scintillation counter. These portable devices are field-ready and very handy in areas where taking a sample back to the lab may not be realistic. The tabletop lab counters come from a variety of manufacturers, such as Beckman, and offer top-notch quality. These items are available in new and used condition from reliable sellers on eBay. Units such as the Beckman LS 6500 liquid scintillation counter comes equipped with a 32,678-channel analyzer with a small error margin. Operating as a sealed system prevents sample contamination and provides you with accurate results every time. With everything from handheld to tabletop or full-size units available, the analysis option is yours to choose, so you can help keep nature pure.
