Question Count all particles only once without "killing" the track

Hi,

I would like to count all particles of a given type (e.g. electrons) that are present in my detector within a given time slice. However I cannot "kill" the e- once it is counted as it may interact further and produce additional electrons. Also my problem is that if I don't "kill" the track once it is counted, I must make sure I don't count the same e- twice, as after a new interaction the track ID will change. I would be very grateful if someone could please let me know if there is a way to count specific particles (only once) without stopping tracking them.

Thank you very much,

Cristian
