Welcome to the Southern Scientific on-line booth.

Southern Scientific manufacture a range of contamination monitors and probes for medical applications, including the Radhound, Handhound and Care Wise C-Trak Galaxy Gamma Probe.

The company now manufactures the Care Wise C-Trak Galaxy Gamma Probe System. This system provides accurate and precise detection of gamma radiation and is used during sentinel node biopsies in breast, melanoma and other types of cancer.

Southern Scientific is also a distributor for Amici lung ventilation products, the Capintec range of products, Digirad single head and cardiac cameras, and the MiE range of general purpose gamma cameras.

 Products

  • Care Wise C-Trak Galaxy Gamma Probe System
    The C-Trak Galaxy System provides accurate and precise detection of gamma radiation for use during sentinel node biopsies in breast, melanoma and other types of cancer....

  • Superior Directionality

    The directionality of a gamma probe is not only determined by the collimation, but the energy of the gamma rays. Incoming gamma rays are deflected by scattering within the tissue. This scattered radiation, known as Compton Scattering, can give a false representation of where the specimen of interest is, especially if deep within the tissue.

    The C-Trak Galaxy system uniquely eliminates scattered radiation, therefore providing superior directionality. The surgeon can then dissect in the right direction to find the tissue of interest, making smaller incisions and dissecting less healthy tissue in the process.

    Probes and Collimators

    OmniProbe

    The OmniProbe has removable collimators making it flexible for a variety of procedures. The collimator has a 5 mm opening which is optimum for the most common procedures such as in breast sentinel node biopsies.

    OmniProbe is available in either straight or angled orientation.

    • OmniProbe PET used for detecting F-18 in FDG.
    • OmniProbe EL for Laparoscopic use
    • (available in straight, 20° or 90°).

    In addition to the OmniProbe the C-Trak Galaxy System can be fitted with alternative probes for specialist applications.

    Lechner Collimator

    The additional Lechner collimator has an even smaller field of view 3 mm making the probe even more directional but at a compromise of some sensitivity.

    The Lechner collimator is especially useful for complex procedures where the nodes are close together and/or close to the injection site such as in the head and neck sentinel node biopsies.

  • A multi-purpose digital radiation survey meter suitable for all your contamination monitoring and radiation protection requirements, the Radhound is a cost effective, feature packed digital radiation monitor that is simple and easy to use.

    Count rate is displayed in large clear numbers and also on a bar scale. Our smart averaging software means a steady display that can be read with confidence, yet provides a fast response.

    For source finding, one button push changes the display to a histogram plot. Alpha and Beta/Gamma counts can
    be displayed separately or on the same screen.

    For surveying operations the Radhound also has an integrator mode.

    • Clear digital LCD display with backlight.
    • GM and scintillation detector options.
    • Fully adjustable alarm levels.
    • Scaler timer function.
    • Ergonomic tilt stand.
    • Wall mountable.
  • Radhound X/E and X/I

  • The Radhound X/E is an advanced hand-held general purpose radiation monitor, suitable for a wide range of probes. The X/I is a Radhound with an internal dose rate detector.

    This feature-packed instrument boasts some unique features, such as the ability to switch between probes via the menu allowing, for example, a dose rate probe and a contamination probe to be configured for use with one instrument. This flexibility allows any standard probe to be used (300 - 1200 V).

    • Clear digital LCD display with backlight.
    • GM and scintillation detector options.
    • Fully adjustable alarm levels.
    • Multiple probe library/configuration.
    • Scaler timer function.
    • Peak mode.
    • Over range.
       
  • Handhound Voice Activated Monitor
    Designed for use in ‘wet-chemistry’ radio-isotope handling situations where hands could be contaminated, the mains-operated Handhound voice activated monitor is an ideal solution....

  • Designed for use in ‘wet-chemistry’ radio-isotope handling situations where hands could be contaminated, the mains-operated Handhound voice activated monitor is an ideal solution.

    The background is updated whilst the unit is not in use. A proximity sensor ensures the user’s hands are underneath the detector, the user then speaks his/her name and says ‘continue’ to begin the process. The system will then begin counting for a predetermined period which can be set by the supervisor.

    A touchscreen interface is also incorporated to allow configuration and manual triggering if needed.

    • Entirely voice operated to avoid instrument contamination.
    • Sensitive scintillation counter for gamma emitters.
    • Automatic background updates.
    • Fixed or dynamic alarm thresholds.
    • Alternative detector options covering a wide range of nuclides.
    • Stainless steel housing for ease of cleaning and decontamination.
    • Automatic record keeping against user names, to aid with HSE compliance.
    • Touch-screen compatibility included as an alternative to voice operation.
    • Data can be downloaded onto USB.
  • Care Wise C-Trak Apollo Gamma Probe System
    Currently in development, the C-Trak Apollo gamma probe allows for the detection of radiation for use during sentinel node biopsies....

  • Currently in development, the C-Trak Apollo gamma probe allows for the detection of radiation for use during sentinel node biopsies.

    Featuring both wireless and wired connectivity with the same probe, the C-Trak Apollo eliminates any potential issues with connectivity, interference and charging – ensuring surgeries are completed without complication.

    • Large touchscreen display for maximum visibility.
    • Probes which provide the optimal balance between directionality and sensitivity.
    • An automatic transcription of timed counts is stored.
    • Save timed counts locally – for retrieval of counts at a later date.
    • Fast calibration and enhanced diagnostics quickly ensure correct functioning.
    • Multiple probes can be stored within for use in a range of procedures.
    • Energy threshold and window technology for a variety of isotopes.
    • Built-in user manual.
