Two technologies – one analyzer – double safety. Within 20 seconds the rugged, handheld GEMINI identifies more than 14.000 hazardous chemicals, explosives, narcotics, precursors, household chemicals and CWAs directly in the danger zone. Previously these analyses had to be carried out in a lab. Now the right steps can be taken instantly.
In 2015 the German Federal Police started to use the twin-analyzer “GEMINI” nationwide for hazard control. Technically and analytically they are therefore up to date.
For the first time GEMINI combines the two preferred analysis technologies FTIR and RAMAN spectroscopy in one single handheld device. Raman Technology can analyze contactless and non-destructively solids and liquids of light color even through transparent containers. FTIR technology has its key-benefits in analyzing dark and fluorescent materials. As both technologies overlap and complement each other, the operators receive better, faster and more reliable results than with a single technology. Time-delayed measurements can also be set for both methods - a significant plus in terms of safety in the case of pressure- or heat-sensitive explosives. The integrated Scan Assistant helps to get best results – even for non-scientific users.
