For first responders across the nation, particularly those in the fields of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosives (CBRNE), the ability to quickly assess a scene to determine if harmful elements, such as radiation, are present is critical to protecting people on-site and providing proper management of a situation.
To address this urgent need, Thermo Fisher Scientific has added new capabilities to its RadEye PRD4/PRD-ER4 (extended release personal radiation detector, to enhance the products ability to detect harmful levels of radiation, accelerate response times and mitigate the chance of nuisance alarms.
The RadEye PRD detector provides first responders, CBRNE teams, border guards, customs agents, military personnel, special forces and counter terrorism teams with high-performance detection for any scenario, providing them the ability to quickly and accurately make informed decisions regarding safety at the scene of operation.
White the RadEye PRD-ER Personal Radiation Detector with extended range, is ideal for both interdiction and response.
The combination of sensitive Cessium Iodide (CsI) detectors and Natural Background Rejection (NBR) in a single instrument reduces nuisance alarms, improves detection response times, increases reach back data quality and minimizes time spent on non-threat events.
“Public safety professionals are often the first ones on the scene of an emergency where potentially hazardous materials are present,” explains Erica Hirsch, vice president and general manager of the Field and Safety Instruments business at Thermo Fisher Scientific.
“The ability to quickly and accurately assess a situation is invaluable.”
“It allows for more effective situational awareness, and prevents others from being put in harm’s way.”
“The new RadEye PRD4/PRD-ER4 is an essential upgrade to the RadEye suite of personal radiation detectors.”
“And its easy-to-use form factor makes it a go-to resource for professionals regardless of skill level.”
The RadEye PRD4/PRD-ER4 can be easily calibrated in the field, enabling users to optimize the instruments based on their current environment, which mitigates downtime and the requirement for extra stock to accommodate costly turn-in and replacement.
The instrument features a simple user interface and large screen which enables reliable analysis regardless of user skill level and expertise.
The RadEye PRD detector provides border guards, customs agents, special forces and counter terrorism teams with high-performance detection for any scenario, and with extended range, is ideal for both interdiction and response.
