Handheld 1064 nm Raman Analyzer

Optimum in-field analysis of general chemical threats

The Rigaku CQL Gen-ID provides advanced analysis of more targeted chemical threats found at the border, or in clandestine and crime laboratories. The CQL Gen-ID provides a cost-effective solution for departments looking for targeted chemical threat analysis, such as narcotics, explosives, household chemicals, precursors, and more.


CQL Gen-ID Overview

The CQL Gen-ID handheld 1064 nm Raman analyzer has the ability to nondestructively identify unknown solids, liquids, powders, pastes, or gels - through translucent packaging.  This keeps the user safe from exposure to a harmful chemical. 

Rigaku's 1064 nm Raman advantage

The advantage of utilizing a 1064 nm Raman laser excitation means fluorescence interference is reduced.  This is a common issue to older generation Raman devices when scanning dirty or mixed substances.  Users can expect a result every scan, in just minutes.  

Part of the U.S. DoD JPEO DR SKO program

The CQL Gen-ID is based on Rigaku's award -winning ResQ and subsequent CQL platforms, which have been evaluated and approved by the U.S. DoD JPEO DR SKO Modernization program.  This program deploys new and improved kits of technology to Department of Defense locations around the world for characterization of suspected chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) hazards. 

Unparalleled support 

The CQL series devices are designed to be cost-effective solutions for presumptive analysis of illicit drugs and is supported by Rigaku's global distribution channels that offer:

  • Comprehensive training options
  • Access to 24/7 Reachback support
  • Spectral library updates
  • Software upgrades
  • 24-month manufacturer's warranty with additional coverage options
