Chemical identification instruments and analyzers for law enforcement

When positive identification is the only option

To protect the public from an unknown source of radiation or chemical attack, police departments must use a range of radiation detectors to suited for a variety of targets such as buildings, parks, parades, races or special events. Our personal radiation detectors can quickly pinpoint the location of radioactive sources, allowing officers to respond to the exact location of a threat. Our portable chemical identification instruments enable testing and identification of potential chemical threats in the field so officers can act quickly.

Chemical identification for law enforcement categories



Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy is a form of vibrational spectroscopy that provides excellent selectivity for material identification in applications such as hazmat, unknown chemical identification, pharmaceutical raw material identification, and explosives precursor identification.
