Detective-100T HPGe-based Hand-Held Radioisotope Identifier

Detective-100T HPGe Based Hand Held Radioisotope IdentifierLooking for special nuclear material can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. Fertilizers, ceramics, kitty litter, medical patients etc., are all radioactive and can confuse most other instruments. When you can’t afford to be wrong, you need an ORTEC Detective.
  • "Expert Level" Determinations without need for an Expert.
  • Simple to Operate: Bright, Clear Displays, touch sensitive screens, intuitive menus.
  • High resolution gamma spectroscopy with confirmatory neutron detection in EX models.
  • Definitive answers to the detection of illicit nuclear materials (SNM) trafficking in seconds, in a battery operated instrument.
  • Fast, Simple and ULTRA-Reliable Classification of NORM, Medical, Industrial, SNM and Natural Isotopes, shielded and unshielded.
  • Highly resistant to masking source interference.
  • ~20 to 50 times better than even the most advanced NaI and CZT instruments.
  • “-100” models even faster to ID.
  • Highest Sensitivity Detection of Neutron Sources in a hand-held instrument.
  • Gamma-Ray and Neutron Search Modes.
  • SNM Search Mode™ finds SNM sources in the presence of other sources.

The ORTEC Detective family of Hand-Held Radioisotope Identifiers (HHRIDs) has gained an unmatched reputation for performance in the rapid identification of radioisotopes in both suspected and actual cases of illicit nuclear materials trafficking. ORTEC Detectives are "the Gold Standard".

    Note on Calibration Check Source
    The calibration check source is internal to the docking station. It comprises a solid, sealed, ~0.25-µCi (9250-Bq) 137Cs calibration source housed in the source holder on the front of the docking station. This source is exempt under U.S. and European regulations and is only supplied pre-installed by ORTEC (not separately). It is not recommended that it be removed, and ORTEC will not accept any responsibility for its removal. If this source is NOT required with the instrument because of local issues, this must be stated at time of order. THE SOURCE CANNOT BE SUPPLIED SEPARATE FROM THE DOCKING STATION.
