The Original 1064 nm Chemical Threat Analyzer
The handheld Progeny ResQ is the original Raman analyzer used to identify unknown compounds utilizing 1064nm laser excitation. Differentiated from traditional handheld and portable Raman systemsThe 1064 nm advantage overcomes sample-induced fluorescence interference, allowing operators to identify many real-world compounds (including those that are colored or found in colored packaging) that were previously “invisible” to older generation systems.
The Progeny ResQ handheld Raman analyzer delivers the most comprehensive substance identification tool to first responders and hazmat professionals. Containing a library of close to 13,000 compounds – including common household chemicals, TICs/TIMs, explosives, narcotics, pesticides, steroids – Progeny ResQ has the ability to measure colored materials through packaging, reducing sample fluorescence interference issues.
Threat recipe alerts with 4C Technology
The Progeny ResQ handheld Raman analyzer has the unique ability to monitor individually identified chemicals that could possibly be used in combinations as precursors to create an ever more hazardous situation – such as the making of explosives or illicit drugs – with 4C Technology. Often a first responder is required to know these vast recipes or have an immediate ability to verify with an off-site expert. This can cause unnecessary delays. Progeny ResQ can now foresee a potentially more dangerous threat and warn the user automatically.
The Progeny ResQ handheld chemical threat analyzer has passed rigorous testing to the United States Military Standard 810-G and IP 68. Progeny ResQ can be operated using one hand with its touch-screen or controlled by the large, hard press buttons that can be felt through several layers of gloves. What’s more, the Progeny ResQ handheld Raman chemical threat analyzer has an embedded 5 mp camera for sample or environment image capture that can be attached to an analysis report.
