Smiths Detection has launched the HazMatID Ranger hand-held chemical identifier system. Specifically designed for diverse field applications requiring broad portability, the system features flexible, single-handed operation. It can also be used in tandem by two responders by detaching and operating its PDA computer and using Bluetooth connectivity. Results can be transmitted to an external laptop for integration with test results performed by other detection equipment. The unit can identify more than 32,000 solids or liquids including: white powders, WMDs, explosives, and common and toxic industrial chemicals.
