The HazMat Guys

We had the opportunity to catch up with Chris Skrocki and Steve Tymoszuk from FLIR to find out what’s new in the Radionuclide Detection world and what there is to offer. Exciting stuff!

FLIR is the world’s leading manufacturer of Radionuclide Identification Devices (RIDs) and has recently introduced the identiFINDER R425. The identiFINDER R425 builds upon the simple to use identiFINDER R400 with a further 3x the gamma sensitivity, 2x neutron sensitivity, a free app to monitor the R425 and transfer files, and a long interval once fielded before factory service.
