We have redefined performance and portability with the new Thermo Scientific Gemini Analyzer, the world’s first and only handheld integrated Raman and FTIR instrument.
FTIR Spectroscopy Academy
Here you can find everything FTIR, from the most basic (what do “FT” and “IR” mean?) to applications using hyphenated techniques.
Raman Spectroscopy Academy
Learn the fundamentals of Raman spectroscopy and how you can apply this technology to your research, analytical and QA/QC activities.
Read about Raman and FTIR technology and how when they are used together, they provide a broader range of unknown substance identification—and better protection for the responder and the community.

How do you stop the flow of narcotics funneling through Turkey’s busiest airport? This is now achievable with the portable, quick-response Thermo Scientific Gemini Handheld Analyzer. The Gemini Analyzer helps identify a broad range of narcotics, unknown chemicals and explosives in the field quickly, safely, and confidently using FTIR and Raman spectroscopy in a single instrument.
HazMasterG3®, from Alluviam LLC, is an advanced decision support tool that has been integrated into the handheld Gemini instrument. It is the only CBRNE / HME / IED support software to have earned a US Department of Homeland Security certification for approved antiterrorism technology. This decision support tool serves as a force multiplier for operators on the front lines of threat response, and provides key chemical insights to help interpret the analyzer’s results.
Learn about the advanced technology, planning tools, and instruments available to first responders, firefighters, law enforcement, military, and government agencies to aid in the detection of radioactive materials and the identification of chemicals, narcotics, and explosive threats.
