Captus ® 3000 Well Counting System


The Captus® 3000 Well Counting System has state-of-the-art wipe testing with a simple menu-driven format. The system will perform a peak search on each wipe identifying any contamination by peak and by nuclide. The user decides how many wipe locations are entered; there are no location limits. Trigger levels may be selected on a user-specified limit set to flag wipes above a specific activity level. Wipes may be grouped by location.

Auto Calibration For Well
The Autocalibrate module provides high voltage, zero offset and automatic gain adjustment; as well as a linearity correction and constancy test. Also included in QA are automatic chi-square and MDA calculation selections. Finally, the program has the ability to automatically perform efficiency calculation and storage for various isotopes.

Wipe History
The highly versatile wipe test module will allow users to establish as many locations as needed and to arrange the locations into either pre-defined or user-defined groupings. The program will perform an automatic peak and isotope identification of wipe results in order to advise the user of the type contamination encountered. There are pre-set trigger levels loaded or the user can define their own trigger levels, either way the results will flag any wipe that exceeds a trigger. Finally, the system will maintain a history of wipe results that can be printed as a whole or in part.

MCA Spectrum Report
The Multi-Channel Analyzer is very user friendly, ROI's can be selected from a convenient menu of isotopes with predefined regions or the user can define them. Protocols can be defined for real time, live time or acquired counts. Results are reported with full spectrum counts and counts by region of interest. All results can be saved in the database or exported to a spreadsheet.

Lab Test Report
In vitro lab test protocols are incorporated into the software; the user has access to Schilling, RBC Survival and both Cr51 and I125 blood volume studies. The program will integrate all patient demographic, physician and dose data and will perform automatic result calculations. By utilizing the report functionality all of the test data can be documented in a hardcopy format for physician review or for documentation in the patients file.
