Technology

The IONSCAN 600 has a proprietary non-radioactive ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) source, which means licensing from national nuclear regulatory agencies is not required. This allows the detector to be used without time-consuming radiation testing and administration, and enables easy license-free transport from location to location.

Lightweight and Portable

The compact, lightweight IONSCAN 600 is easily portable; it includes hot-swappable batteries for full operation even when mains power is not available. The unit can be relocated whilst fully operational (without any downtime) enabling it to be used in a much broader range of screening environments.

Cost Effective

The IONSCAN 600 is unique in working with cost-effective, single-use swabs suitable for both manual and wand sampling. These proprietary swabs are designed for efficient trace particle pick-up, reduce contamination risk and offer the most hygienic method for sampling a person’s hands.
