The RDS-80A Surface Contamination Meter is a versatile contamination detector which has been designed for a wide range of applications in different fields of radiation protection in nuclear industry, rescue and other operations, involving a potential for abnormal contamination levels.

The Digital, Hand Held Pulse Rate Meter is suitable for personnel who need to locate and detect contaminated surfaces/objects during their work.  The functions comprise contamination measurements with alarm functions and automatic conversion to activity value and additionally surface contamination measurement with the ability to store the histogram events into the meter’s internal memory.  The use of configuration software (CWS) is required for downloading the data into a PC via IrDA port).

  • CT007-Radiation Response Kit (02)

    CT007-Radiation Response Kit (02) $1,400.00

    The Pancakes Kit includes two CT007-P pancake detectors and a telescoping handle in a rugged protective case. This kit is ideal for First Responder teams. For hot zone / cold zone delineation, one CT007-P is used in dose rate mode and the other is used in contamination mode. During decontamination, both detectors are used in contamination mode. The redundancy achieved by using two identical instruments for different tasks means that all tasks can still be performed, even if one of the detectors is damaged. Also, one CT007-P can be used to confirm the reading of the other one. The kit can be supplied with only one CT007-P (Kit-01) and the CT007-P is also available without accessories.

  • ONYX

    ONYX $860.00

    ONYX® can be used as a stand alone pocketable instrument, or it can connect to the internet and share data. The ONYX has a six button touch sensitive keypad that allows for easy use of a wide variety of functions such as graphic display of data, adjustment of audio chirp, data logging, changing units of measurement and calibration. ONYX also permits the user to upgrade the software running on the device to the latest version using a simple internet download feature.

  • CT007-N NanoNuke

    CT007-N NanoNuke $350.00

    The Nanonuke is a very small, yet highly sensitive radiation detector that fits into the smallest pocket, without pinching the wearer. It can connect to a smartphone via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). When connected to a phone, our GammaGuard app provides a rich user interface (UI). The user only interacts with the phone and NanoNuke remains ergonomically out of the way in the user’s pocket or at a remote location. This is ideal for covertly checking an area for radiation. The GammaGuard app can run in the background and alert the user of elevated radiation levels. The GammaGuard app allows for time and date stamped data logging with GPS coordinates. The data can be logged to a file on the phone and it can (optionally) be logged to web based databases, such as RadResponder, facilitating a coordinated incident response. Two NanoNukes can be connected to GammaGuard at the same time and can be used as a directional radiation detector (patent pending). Prior to NanoNuke, specialized direction finding equipment was large, bulky, complex, fragile and expensive.

  • MC1K Handheld Radiation Alert® Detector

    MC1K Handheld Radiation Alert® Detector $435.00

    The MC1K is a handheld survey meter using a built-in energy compensated GM detector. It detects gamma and x-rays up to 1000 mR/hr over 4 selectable ranges. A beep sounds and a count light flashes with each event detected.

  • Ranger

    Ranger $695.00

    The Ranger offers maximum performance in a lightweight, rugged solution for surveying at the facility or in the field. The Ranger has been designed for industrial environments, but it still has all of the features you've come to love in the lab. The Ranger is a small, handheld, microprocessor-based instrument which offers excellent sensitivity to low levels of alpha, beta, gamma, and x-rays and has built in efficiencies for common isotopes to calculate activity in Bq and DPM. It has a backlit digital display, a red count light, and a beeper that sounds with each count detected. Other features include selectable alert levels, an adjustable timer, and an optional wipe test plate for swipes. Internal memory and the free Observer USB Software that allows you to download your data, set computer alarms, and calibrate your instrument!

  • CT007-F

    CT007-F $250.00

    The CT007-F is a compact alpha, beta, gamma detector. This makes it suitable for identifying radioactive contamination.

    Unlike pancake Geiger-Mueller tube based instruments, it is light, compact, and durable.

    The CT007-F is sensitive enough to pick up the radiation from household items, but can still measure up to dangerous levels. It is easy to use and can even connect wirelessly to your phone. The phone provides a rich user interface and allows for time and date stamped data logging with GPS coordinates. The data can be logged to a file on your phone as well as optionally being logged to RadResponder. On the back is the sensor with an alpha/beta shield. This shield can be closed to take gamma only measurements, or opened to reveal the sensor window and take alpha and beta readings. This shield also keeps the sensor safe during transport.
