Military and civilian first responders who use handheld instruments to identify unknown chemicals, explosives and toxic materials can enhance their capability with a new software upgrade for Thermo Scientific FirstDefender RM and FirstDefender RMX handheld analyzers.
The Thermo Scientific FirstDefenderRM/RMX 4.1 software includes “tagging” – a feature that enables users to prioritize the chemicals of greatest concern, providing focused analysis on select substances, while maintaining a broad identification capability of more than 11,600 chemicals. In short, this enables lower detection limits and on-screen notification for tagged items. The FirstDefenderRM/RMX 4.1 software update brings the tagging feature to global customers through Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese and Russian language configurations.
Recognized for its field-proven identification capabilities, Thermo Scientific FirstDefender instruments provide fast, reliable, non-contact and non-destructive analysis of unknown chemicals, speeding response and increasing responder safety.
