AP Suite 6

The Atom Prober's Toolkit for Data Analysis Workstations
AP Suite 6.3 is a user-friendly, collaborative platform to seamlessly manage your entire Atom Probe Tomography (APT) research projects within one single environment. AP Suite 6 incorporates a database-centered workflow through the Data Navigator and Asset Manager modules.

  • Data Navigator: Where APT sample projects are created and where the data resulting from those projects is organized and accessed.
  • Asset Manager: Where specimens are created and where lab & specimen storage locations are tracked.
  • IVAS 6: Once a dataset is identified for further analysis, loading it into IVAS 6 can be done with a click of the mouse.

Ideal for multi-user facilities
AP Suite 6.3 is designed as a collaborative, multi-user platform to serve the APT needs of any member in your organization: user-specific logins can be assigned, enabling security based on individual access rights. If you have external academic collaborators that need AP Suite access, you should see if they qualify for the AP Suite Access program that provides free access to a full version of the latest release of AP Suite analysis software.”  

Easy navigation & data preview

AP Suite 6 communicates with your database of scientific projects, samples, previously acquired data and analyses. You can preview results within the data navigator with no need to load it in IVAS.

AP Suite is now available for download
