Solutions for public safety and security personnel

Our solutions are lab-proven and field-ready to address a wide range of public safety and security threats including chemicals, narcotics, hazardous materials, and explosives. We’ve tailored these solutions to meet the specific needs of first responders, fire departments, law enforcement, military, and other government agencies to help ensure that personnel are well equipped and can respond quickly, accurately, and safely. 


Hazardous materials and chemical ID

Robust and highly reliable detection devices allow first responders to quickly and easily identify substances and act accordingly, even in the most difficult field scenarios.

Our products are rugged, highly reliable, and fast.

Firefighters use Thermo Scientific products when facing hazardous materials

Field-based chemical identification tools help to protect personnel, mitigate the scene, and safely execute the emergency response mission.  Our materials identification systems enable responders to analyze and identify potentially toxic and explosive chemicals, unlabeled spilled materials, illegally dumped chemicals, or any other unknown chemical threat that may be encountered, swiftly and safely.

Radiation detection

Our integrated solutions include portable radiation detection, dosimetry, and monitoring systems that protect personnel, critical infrastructure, defined surveillance sites, and surrounding areas.

Protecting our borders from radioactive materials

Arm your security team with the proper tools Natural Background Rejection (NBR) technology is critical to more accurate detection, location, and identification of radioactive nuclides such as nuclear weapons, dirty bombs, and orphaned or purposely masked sources. Our portals, monitors, probes, Geiger-Mueller detectors, and other radiation detection and monitoring instruments feature this patented technology.

Narcotics identification

Police, customs, and first responders must be able to identify unknown substances on the spot to keep the public and themselves safe – whether it’s on the street corner or at a large shipping port at the border. We offer a portfolio of lab-proven and reliable narcotics and chemical identification products that can provide immediate analysis.

Detect and deter dangerous substances before they reach the public.

Lab proven Whether it be field-based presumptive testing or advanced identification, we provide products that integrate non-contact, non-destructive testing methods with lab-proven technology to keep safety a top priority.
