This report describes an efficient technique for the rapid dissolution of tissues for liquid scintillation counting incorporating the advantages of previously published studies to obtain high counting efficiencies without phase separation. We have employed a 2 N solution of methanolic KOH as the solubilizing agent, and ethylene glycol monobutyl ether to bring about complete miscibility of the tissue digest with the toluene scintillator solution.
