Laura 4

IN/US Systems has updated its Laura 4 radiochromatography system. It now offers researchers the ability to import data from liquid scintillation counters and plate readers such as Top Count and Micro Beta.

Once imported (either directly or via disk transfer), the data can be processed using Laura's range of intuitive tools for chromatogram integration. It can also be compared and included in reports along with the data collected from online radio flow-through detectors.

Using Laura, backgrounds can be accurately defined and subtracted; correction for half life decay is automatic when working with short-lived radio-isotopes; and limits of detection can easily be defined.

Runs under low-level counting conditions can be viewed with exceptional clarity thanks to IN/US's Statistical Deconvolution Algorithm (SDA), which improves visual detail without smoothing data, revealing the smallest of peaks against background, while leaving the raw data unchanged.
