Radiation protection and monitoring instruments for government agencies

Quickly identify a variety of radiation types

Radiation protection goes wherever you go with our compact, portable radiation detection and identification instruments. Our radiation detectors and monitoring instruments feature patented Natural Background Rejection (NBR) technology to detect, locate, and identify radioactive nuclides such as nuclear weapons, dirty bombs, and orphaned or purposely masked sources. We also offer a wide range of alpha and beta probes well suited for a range of applications.

Quickly distinguish between naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) and radiation from man-made sources such as nuclear weapons, improvised nuclear devices (INDs), or radiological dispersal devices (RDDs). We offers a variety of portable radiation detection devices and instruments for radiation protection and continuous monitoring with immediate alert to a variety of radiation types.

Safeguard military and civil defense outfits and other industries that work with sources of radiation or need to address the problems of orphaned, unknown, and hidden radioactive threats. Thermo Scientific contamination monitors are designed to withstand the demanding environment in which first responders, security forces and military operate.

Optimize efficiency by integrating personnel, area, and environmental radiation monitoring systems into one solution. The Thermo Scientific ViewPoint Enterprise Remote Monitoring System is a multifaceted tool set that integrates a variety of environmental and industrial process radiation monitoring instruments. It provides real-time monitoring during normal and outage operations at critical or for applications such as radiological hotspot identification, environmental contamination detection, or routine security surveillance.

Get effective dose monitoring when and where you need it. We offer a variety of electronic personal radiation dosimeters, extremity dosimeters, and comprehensive dosimetry management systems to monitor your exposure to ionizing radiation in any work environment.

Prevent the spread of contamination on any surface that could be exposed to radioactive material. We offer a wide variety of portable alpha, beta, and gamma probes for contamination surveys on large and small objects including table tops, floors, equipment, and personal items.
