Raman spectroscopy for Analysis of Suspect Materials
The Progeny™ ResQ™ 1064 nm handheld Raman analyzer provides emergency responders, law enforcement agencies and the military with the industry’s most advanced yet easy-to-use CBRNE detection system. It offers fast fluorescence free identification of chemical threats, explosives and illegal drugs.
Rapid, Reliable Results with Lab Quality
Emergency services, border guards and law enforcement agencies are confronted with a multitude of potential dangers and new sophisticated methods in the field of drug trafficking and hazardous substances. The Progeny™ ResQ™ supports the work of the emergency services by:
- Simple operation – results after only three button presses – even when wearing M3 type protective clothing
- Clearly presented results within seconds
- A continuously growing database with more than 12500 substances – expandable by the users
- A rugged design, waterproof (IP68) and certified to MIL-Spec 810G – easy decontamination in the field
- The possibility to measure through many types of containers – no direct contact with the sample is necessary.
With the Progeny™ ResQ™, emergency services can react quickly and safely to incidents on site and thus maintain public safety. The device starts up in only 40 seconds, so that the first result can be obtained in less than a minute.
4C™ Technology – Detecting Criminal Intent & Threats
Individual substances from which drugs or explosives can be produced are not always easily recognized, so that possible criminal intentions or even immediate threats are recognized too late or not at all. The 4C™ mode makes this problem a thing of the past. After switching to 4C™ mode, the recorded results are combined by an algorithm over a defined period of time. If illegal substances can be produced from the measured samples, the device displays the potential illegal substance and sends out an alarm so that the user can react accordingly.
Integrated Digital Camera & Barcode Scanner
The integrated camera allows the recording of images of the measured sample as well as the reading of QR and barcodes for fast and reliable documentation.
The Progeny™ ResQ™ has been specifically designed to meet the needs of those who encounter stressful and unpredictable settings.
- A smartphone-inspired user interface with touchscreen display
- Navigation via large buttons according to military specifications
- Slim design that allows one-handed operation
- MIL-STD 810G & IP-68 certified, rugged and durable
- Easy to decontaminate.
The Progeny™ ResQ™ is no ordinary analytical device, it is tailor-made system for:
- Fire fighters and civil protection
- Emergency doctors and paramedics
- Border management and customs
- CBRN explorer
