Safety & Security

    Safety and security threat analysis continuously evolves as threats continue to emerge. First responders, law enforcement professionals, customs agencies, the military, and public health play a critical role in protecting communities. Whether it is securing our borders from illegal drug trafficking, to repopulating a neighborhood after a CBRNe attack, to keeping dangerous synthetic opioids off our streets, safety and security personnel put their lives on the line every day for the greater good.

    There is a critical need for these sectors to have access to the latest in handheld chemical analysis technology that is easy to use - by a non-scientist.  Rigaku's portfolio of handheld analyzers are the tool of choice among global safety & security agencies who have a need to presumptively identify a chemical threat in stressful and harsh environments.

    • 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!
