The [Formula Presented] strangeness and charge changing reaction was investigated by producing a [Formula Presented] hypernucleus from a carbon target. The branching ratio for [Formula Presented] capture to the ground and [Formula Presented]-shell states of this hypernucleus was found to be [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented], respectively, which after correction for isospin was lower than a previously measured value for the [Formula Presented] reaction, but still above the theoretical predictions for the ground state. The experiment obtained a missing-mass resolution comparable to in-flight reactions, however the higher background and lower selectivity of the [Formula Presented] reaction limits its usefulness in the study of new hypernuclear species.
