BioMax TranScreen HE

Provides Maximum Sensitivity and Improves Spatial Resolution

Designed for use with gamma emitters such as 125 I and high-energy beta emitters such as 32 P, the BIOMAX TranScreen HE intensifying screen offers the greatest sensitivity. When used in conjunction with the BIOMAX MS film, the system equals or exceeds the image quality of conventional autoradiography screen/film systems. By minimizing the distances between the radioisotope and phosphor layer, it presents the phosphor to the emitting particles immediately, for less scattering and better spatial resolution.

  • Maximum sensitivity for penetrating radiation isotopes (32P, 125I).
  • Thicker phosphor layer than TranScreen LE Screen converts more of the penetrating radiation (i.e. 32 P & 125I) energy to photons.
  • Improves resolution and decreases background compared to regular intensifying screens.

Available Sizes

856 3959 BIOMAX TranScreen HE Intensifying Screen 8x10 inches
881 1457 BIOMAX TranScreen HE Intensifying Screen 35x43 cm
835 6800 BIOMAX TranScreen HE Intensifying Screen with BIOMAX Cassette 8x10 inches
Both versions of the TranScreen screen system will provide increased sensitivity when used with any film. However, the BIOMAX TranScreen systems have been optimized to provide the greatest sensitivity when used with the BIOMAX MS film and BIOMAX Cassette. As with conventional intensifying screens, the BIOMAX TranScreen screen systems must be used at -60 to -70 C to reduce latent image fading.
