Assays involving radiochemicals can be run in various medium- and high-throughput plate-based formats, including filtration assays (commonly used for thymidine incorporation and radioligand binding assays), liquid scintillation counting assays, scintillant coated-plate assays (commonly used for HPLC fraction analysis or 51Cr release assays), and proximity assays (using SPA beads, FlashPlate® microplates, or Cytostar-T™ plates). Plate recommendations for each assay format are detailed in the sections below. Radiometric assays that measure signal coming from a beta-emitting radioisotope (such as 3H, 14C, 32P, 33P, and 35S) or a radioisotope that releases Auger electrons (such as 125I and 51Cr) typically rely on addition of a scintillant, which captures the energy from the emitted beta particle and, in turn, releases energy in the form of photons that can be measured on radiometric instruments (such as the PerkinElmer MicroBeta® or TopCount® Plate Counters) that use a photomultiplier tube for detection. Because of this, plate selection for these assays will factor in some of the same considerations as for standard luminescence assays. Liquid scintillation counting assays require the use of liquid scintillation cocktails, which can sometimes contain harsh organic solvents. For these assays, compatibility of the plate material with the cocktail solvent should be a consideration. Additional considerations such as whether the detection instrument is reading from the top and/or bottom of the plate should also be factored in when choosing a plate. Clear-bottom plates allow for bottom-reading and coincidence measurements on instruments such as the MicroBeta plate counter. Clear-bottom plates with black or white wells can be used in conjunction with BackSeal™ Adhesive Bottom Seal to reduce cross-talk in top-reading measurements. Solid opaque plates need to be measured with top-reading instruments, such as the TopCount system (the MicroBeta counter can also support top-reading measurements).
ADME-toxicology (ADME-Tox) studies are used in pharmacology and pharmacokinetics to assess the activity/toxicity of drugs in vivo or in vitro.

The next generation WIZARD® Automatic Gamma Counter, Wizard2, is designed for superior counting performance with all types of samples and for every gamma counting application. RIA studies, chromium release studies and nuclear medicine applications, such as PET research, are just some examples of possible gamma applications for Wizard2 instruments. Unique well-type detectors and sample changer system, advanced robotics, and highly effective lead shielding result in superior counting efficiency, consistent background and minimal crosstalk. A Windows® operating system with touch screen for easy and fast instrument operation of routine tasks makes Wizard2 the most user-friendly gamma counter on the market. The instrument is also designed for use in clinical laboratories and is 21 CFR Part 11 compatible to support pharmaceutical industry requirements. Well-type detectors deliver superior counting performance. Well-type NaI (Tl) detectors collect signal from all around the sample, rather than just from the sides, providing the best counting efficiency possible. Instruments that use the through-hole detector are very dependent on sample position and volume. With the detector design employed in Wizard2, the effect of sample position and volume is minimal, which is a great advantage. Effective lead shielding means constant background and minimal crosstalk. In a universal gamma counter, the lead shielding around the detector is another important factor in determining the performance of the instrument. Wizard2 counters have no open elevator passages through which interfering radiation can pass to the detector. The 2480 Wizard2 has 75 mm (3.0 in), and each detector in the 2470 Wizard2 has 30 mm (1.2 in) of solid lead against the samples in the conveyor. The 2470 and 2480 Wizard2 detector assemblies are also covered by lead shielding, of thickness 12 mm (0.5 in) and 50 mm (2.0 in) respectively. As a result, Wizard2 counters surpass all others in background and crosstalk reduction. Sample transfer from racks to measurement position employs a sophisticated robotic sample changer. Wizard2 counters are designed with a unique sample changer system that enables lifting of samples to well type detectors from a conveyor. The conveyor with the rest of the samples always remains hidden behind the lead shielding. 2470 Wizard2-for basic research and routine counting applications.
