Cell Harvester

There are several much better systems than the PHD harvester, but much
more expensive.  If you can get your institute to pay you can save
yourself and others a lot of time and money.  There are harvesters that
harvest the entire plate to one small filter which can be read directly
(read no vials, scintillation fluid etc..) using a gas stream detection
system.  We use a Packard instrument I am sure others are out there. 
Think of the time and $ you spend on vials and fluid.  Think of the
disposal cost for this radioactive material!!  With this system you have
one small filter/plate.

Good luck
