Radionuclide Identifier

The Radiation Raider is a state-of-the-art handheld instrument in a class of its own. It uniquely meets or exceeds the performance requirements of ANSI N42-34 (RID) and ANSI N42-48 (SPRD) standards. The instrumentutilizes an innovative array of solid-state CZT detectors and (optional) He3 tubes to provide superior gamma and neutron sensitivities resulting in a rapid identification and verification of radioactive materials.

The Raider is small enough and light enough to be held and operated with one hand and can be conveniently clipped to the user’s belt in the holster provided. Four buttons, two on each side, are all that are required to access every feature of this instrument. It is both water and drop resistant, making it rugged and ideal for strenuous operating situations.
