Consumer Safety and Regulatory

Instantly mitigate hazardous material threats in the field, buildings, and homes

Toxic metals such as lead, mercury and cadmium potentially touch our lives every day, from paint and asbestos in homes and buildings to clothing, toys, and electronics – even art and artifacts.

Thermo Scientific™ Niton™ and Thermo Scientific™ microPHAZIR™ portable analyzers are trusted by key regulatory agencies to screen consumer products for these hazardous materials. Manufacturers, builders, and remediation specialists rely on our analyzers to positively identify hazardous materials in the field for improved worksite safety and internal quality control.

Protection is in your hands - see how fast and effective hazardous material identification can be.

Applications

The identification and remediation of environmental contaminants is a major, costly challenge. From hazardous site modeling and risk assessment to on-site contaminant screening and soil stabilization, our analyzers provide nearly instantaneous, legally-defensible results for fast decision making at significantly less cost than off-site laboratory testing.

An effective screening program using our analyzers greatly reduces the chances that lead-containing materials will enter the manufacturing process or mistakenly  end up on store shelves. This starts with a process that includes rapid screening of metals, polymers, and components at the receiving dock, in the warehouse, during product assembly, at vendor sites, and through product packaging.

Worldwide Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) regulations and halogen-free initiatives continue to impact the manufacturers of electrical and electronic goods and their supply chains. Both regulatory and enforcement agencies can screen goods for conformity using Niton analyzers, verifying compliance at all stages of manufacturing.

With the ability to identify and quantify virtually any element from magnesium through uranium, our analyzers are an ideal option for portable archaeometric analysis, and for ensuring that traces of toxic preservatives have been removed from artifacts prior to repatriation.
