With the ability to scan through packaging, the user is safe from exposure to potentially dangerous materials. Another benefit is that users now have the ability to identify colored or dirty substances as well – in under 1 minute – without fluorescence issues!

The Rigaku ResQ handheld analyzer is the original 1064 nm handheld Raman for chemical threat analysis and is approved as part of the U.S. DoD JPEO DR SKO Program.

The Rigaku ResQ CQL handheld analyzer provides fast chemical threat analysis – in a new tactical design. The ResQ CQL has the additional benefits of detecting trace or non-visible amounts of a substance with QuickDetect Technology.
