    The IPC-650-GFL and IPC-650-GFW low background automatics incorporate a built-in color touch screen interface and are targeted toward health physics and radiochemistry applications. The hemispherical, windowless, gas-flow proportional counter design of the IPC-650-GFL offers the best efficiencies available for low-energy beta and alpha particles. Each counter has the ability to program routines and QC charts on a PC running the included DUO Express software, then transfer the routines to the instrument using a direct-connect PIC Link cable.
