Thermo Electron Corp. presents a complete range of simple and flexible forensics solutions. These tools are tailored to help forensic scientists provide consistent, accurate results and improve their productivity in the face of ever-expanding workloads. Thermo provides the means for ultimate analysis accuracy while simultaneously decreasing sample analysis time, resulting in increased workload efficiency. From evidence collection and storage, sample preparation, autopsy diagnostics and tissue processing to a full range of crime laboratory analyses, Thermo's forensic solutions ensure complete accuracy and dependability of results.
Thermo Electron Corp.'s Nicolet Compound ID portable infrared analyzer is an easy-to-use instrument that provides fast, nondestructive classification of materials under extreme conditions. This allows first responders to identify hazardous materials on-scene. This device has been tested for use while wearing protective gear, including Level A suits and SCBA gear. The analyzer operates in a Hazmat restricted areea warm zones while its lightweight removable sampling module (SealR) lets the responder enter the hot zone. The unknown sample can then be contained within the Seal IR. Mutiple Seal IR modules can be used for simultaneous sampling when time is critical. A simple software interface guides the responder through the analysis of unknown materials.
Thermo Electron Corporation announces the availability of GC and GC/MS solutions specifically designed to increase productivity when performing forensic analysis of explosive residues and accelerants in arson studies. For the analysis of explosive residues, Thermo provides a complete solution comprised of the DSQ GC/MS system, Xcalibur software and the TriPlus Autosampler which provides automated injections. This solution achieves minimized degradation and timely results while adhering to quality control criteria developed specifically for the analysis of explosive residues. For the analysis of accelerants in arson studies, Thermo has combined the extremely fast oven performance of the FOCUS GC with the flexibility in operation of TriPlus HeadSpace autosampler. This comprehensive solution achieves significant time savings by performing analysis of principal accelerants such as acetone, methylated spirit, gas oil and high octane petrol five times faster than conventional gas chromatography.
Thermo Electron Corp. offers two handheld radiation meters -- the RadEye PRD (Personal Radiation Detector) and the RadEye G (Wide-range Gamma Survey Meter). The RadEye PRD (pictured) is a high-sensitivity personal radiation detector that monitors for nuclear weapons, improvised nuclear devices (INDs) and/or radiological dispersal devices (RDDs or dirty bombs). Designed for use by first preventers (border guards, customs agents, special forces and counter terrorism teams), the RadEye G measures levels of ambient gamma doses for personal radiation protection of first responders (emergency services and law enforcement). Both performance-measuring devices serve to provide high sensitivity in a small, compact design.
The Thermo Electron RadEye is a pocket-sized radiation meter, designed to do the work of a larger radiation meter and is 5,000 to 100,000 times more sensitive than a typical electronic dosimeter. With a battery life of approximately 600 hours and a time saving, differentiating technology, the RadEye raises the bar on radiation detection meters. Its rugged, pocket-sized design will appeal to border guards, customs agents, special forces troops, counter terrorism teams and police forces who rely on gear that is both high quality and durable for field use.
Thermo Electron today The Interceptor is a pager-sized instrument that enables anti-terrorism officials and other homeland security personnel to detect and identify possible nuclear threats. The Interceptor enables immediate identification of the radionuclide and electronically transmits the data, along with a digital picture and an audio description of the situation. The Thermo Electron spectroscopic personal radiation detector has features that have, until now, required two separate instruments -- a Personal Radiation Detector (PRD), and a Radiation Isotope Identifier Device (RIID). The PRD is a hand-held device that is easily clipped to a duty belt and used by an emergency responder to detect a potential threat. While PRDs communicate to a base station or appropriate experts; they do not pinpoint the type of isotope. That job typically falls to the RIID, a more sophisticated instrument, which is used to identify specific isotopes as the physical situation is assessed.
Thermo Electron Corp.offers the Airborne Sample Analysis Platform (ASAP System) Biological Aerosol Sampler. The environmental monitor provides the an effective means for collecting particles in outdoor or indoor environments to determine their biological composition in a laboratory. The sampling technique used in the ASAP System operates at a high flow rate of 200 l/min while consuming only about as much power as a dim 40-watt light bulb. Also, the ASAP System's small size (about 1 cubic foot) and low noise output on par with that of a computer projector make it suitable for deployment in a variety of outdoor or indoor applications. The sampler can be powered by AC or DC power, such as a vehicle power port or a battery, and it contains an internal uninterrupted power supply to cover power outages of up to one hour.
Thermo Electron Corp.'s RadReachBack communications system is now available in its full line of radiation detection and identification instruments and systems. The open architecture enables customers to integrate and interconnect their new instruments and installed components, communicating either wirelessly or through wired connections. Thermo's RadReachBack detection instruments contain a patented software capability that enables emergency personnel to get real-time, 24/7 technical analysis of radiation samples they find in the field. With the RadReachBack system, data from a personal radiation detector (PRD), mobile system or radiation portal can be sent directly to a command center, expert analysis facility, or even a next-level response agency.
