    This hemispherical windowless gas-flow proportional counter design offers the best efficiencies available for low-energy beta and alpha particles. The IPC-650 ultra-low background windowless automatic is intended to address only the radiochemistry market and does not have a built-in interface, thus is only operated from a PC running the Vista 2000 radiochemistry software.
