Liquid Scintillation Counting: Automated Mathematical Fitting and Use of Channels Ratio Methods by Computer Program

One way of expressing the liquid scintillation counting job is simply that after a tracer experiment yields some samples one wants to know how much tracer is in each. These samples may vary greatly in physical, chemical, and color properties. These properties affect the scintillation process. If we rely on relative count rates for comparing samples, we may be greatly deceived.
