Apex-Alpha - Alpha Spectroscopy Software Suite


Apex-Alpha™ is the ultimate alpha spectroscopy software package for automating detector set-up and calibration, quality assurance, sample analysis and reporting activities in large or small alpha spectroscopy laboratories. This software package brings the productivity gains to alpha spectroscopy that the Apex® Lab Productivity Suite has brought to gamma spectroscopy for a number of years.

With Apex-Alpha, the complete status of your alpha spectrometers is available at a glance. Click – and find all the batches waiting to be counted. Log samples into the system from any location where the information is known, such as from the radiochemistry laboratory or other sample log-in area. Let Apex-Alpha enforce your calibration/QA schedules and monitor QA results – and automatically take the appropriate action if something goes wrong.

Alpha spectroscopy typically has specialized requirements for wet chemistry and sample preparation prior to counting. The quality of the sample prep plays a large role in determining the quality of the end results of sample analysis. Apex-Alpha handles the requirements for tracers, reagent blanks, spikes, etc. with ease and can accommodate the counting, statistical analysis and quality assurance associated with any of these sample analysis methods that may be in use at your laboratory.
