Safety and Security

Identification of chemical threats and forensic evidence

To prevent or defuse chemical threats in various situations, from transportation screening to disaster response, our handheld Raman spectrometers identify chemical threats. Thousands of Rigaku handheld analyzers are used globally, contributing to our safety and security every day. Furthermore, in forensics, our small spot X‑ray fluorescence (XRF) determines the concentration and distribution of chemical elements, while X‑ray diffraction (XRD) identifies chemical phases.
