Hidex provides high performance scintillation cocktails tested to give optimum performance with Hidex scintillation counters Hidex 300SL, Hidex 600SL and Hidex Triathler for water-soluble, lipophilic, filter counting, alpha beta separation, general beta counting and low level applications. NPE free liquid scintillation cocktails also available.

NPE-Free ProSafe cocktails for all applications and purposes


The ProSafe+ range of cocktails was developed to overcome the NPE issue. They have been formulated using alcohol ethoxylates and as such do not contain any NPEs either as a base component or as a derivative component. The absence of NPEs means that they are not in breach of EEC directive 2003/53/EC or REACH.

ProSafe+ has been tested under OECD 302B (Zahn Wellens / EMPA test) by an approved environmental testing laboratory. The results show that ProSafe+ undergoes a 100% organic carbon biodegradation.

ProSafe cocktails are sold in boxes containing two 5 Liter canisters. Product codes in parenthesis.

  • (PS+) ProSafe+ for routine general counting
  • (PSLT+) ProSafe LT+ for Low level Tritium counting
  • (PSBio+) ProSafe Bio+ for biological samples
