Rigaku ResQ CQL 1064 nm handheld Raman analyzer for chemical threat detection

Security Today magazine is a leading industry media brand providing technology, education and solutions for security professionals. In the 12th year of the independently juried contest, winners were chosen among 37 categories.

The Rigaku ResQ CQL handheld 1064 nm Raman analyzer offers first responders, border protection and law enforcement with an advanced method for identifying potential chemical threats. The utilization of 1064 nm Raman means the ResQ CQL analyzer has the ability to overcome fluorescence interference, thus providing a rapid response of less than 1 minute, the ability to scan dirty or colored substances, and the capability to scan through translucent packaging – keeping first responders safer by avoiding exposure.

With the combination of optional QuickDetect Technology, the ResQ CQL analyzer has the added capabilities to detect non-visible amounts of narcotics and explosives.

Additional smart features available include:

  • On-board 5 MP camera for imaging, colorimetrics analysis, or barcode scanning
  • LED flashlight for optimal sample visibility
  • Quick Scan button for faster scans
  • 4C Technology for precursor monitoring
