Apex-Alpha/Beta™ software is a Windows 10 (64-bit) software application for automating detector setup and calibration, quality assurance, sample analysis and reporting activities with the Mirion low background alpha / beta counting systems. It is designed for the way samples are counted in production laboratories, thereby making gross alpha / beta sample analysis and associated quality assurance and data management tasks fast and efficient.
Mirion has been building low background alpha/beta counters for over 30 years. In that time, many software packages have come and gone, but power and ease of use are still dominant on the wish lists of users. The Mirion Apex-Alpha /Beta software is a fresh approach to the application using current tools with no dependencies on outdated spreadsheets, yesterday’s database formats, or expensive third party reporting tools.
The software is the culmination of everything Mirion has learned over the years about alpha/beta counting needs from the earliest DOS applications, all the way through the Mirion Eclipse software. Apex-Alpha /Beta software draws heavily on paradigms established in Mirion’s highly successful Apex-Gamma™ and Apex-Alpha™ software.
