Comprehensive Hazmat Analysis

    First responders face a very difficult and dangerous task of being called upon to mitigate the unknown. Facing a vast array of potentially deadly substances in various capacities, responders may be exposed to hazardous household chemicals, narcotics - even explosives. It is critical for first responders to have equipment that provides the most advanced and comprehensive chemical analysis in order to keep them and their communities safe.

    Handheld Rigaku Raman technology provides identification of chemicals found in solids, liquids, powders, gels and pastes - even through packaging. This capability keeps users safe from exposure to hazardous substances, such as fentanyl. The CQL portfolio of handheld Raman analyzers has the added capability of using 1064 nm Raman, which means fluorescence is reduced when scanning dirty or colored materials. The optional QuickDetect Mode provides a method for detecting non-visible substances.

    What other Departments are Saying

    • I purchased the Rigaku analyzer for 3 reasons: results in 10 seconds or less, little to no fluorescence, and it sees through colored containers - it was a no brainer!
