Radiation detectors for ThermoFisher.

ICx Technologies : 16 April, 2008  (Application Story)
Identifinder radiation detection units are able to distinguish between sources of a threatening nature from trace radiation in normal products of a non-threatening nature.
ICx Technologies has been awarded an order worth $4.4 million, to provide Identifinder radiation detectors to ThermoFisher Scientific.

The Identifinder is a hand-held detection unit that finds and, most importantly, identifies radioactive material. With more than 6,000 units in daily use by government, military and security forces worldwide, the Identifinder differentiates real nuclear threats (illicit materials or parts of dirty bombs, for example) from non-threatening radiation sources, such as medical patients or shipments of products like kitty litter and bananas, which contain normally occurring radioactive elements. "Because our device is so fast and precise," said Juergen Stein, CEO of ICx Technologies' radiation division, "next-step responses can rapidly be determined without unnecessary disruption to traffic flow, passengers or commerce."

The kits will be used by a number of government agencies for homeland defence.
