Progeny ResQ 1064nm handheld Raman provides emergency responders, law enforcement agencies and the military with the industry’s most comprehensive tool for chemical identification, CBRNe detection, and narcotics classification in a fast and simple handheld form.
Faced with increasingly sophisticated chemical threats and global drug trafficking, Progeny ResQ provides users with confidence to:
- Detect explosive threats quickly and accurately in harsh environments
- Identify a wide range of narcotics and illegal drugs
- Respond to suspicious hazardous materials that risk public safety
Progeny ResQ is a cutting-edge chemical detection system. that uses Raman spectroscopy to identify unknown compounds. Differentiated from traditional handheld and portable Raman systems, Progeny ResQ utilizes unique 1064nm laser excitation. The 1064nm advantage overcomes sample-induced fluorescence interference, allowing operators to identify many real-world compounds (including those that are colored or found in colored packaging) that were previously “invisible” to older generation systems.
With a library of over 13,000 compounds, Progeny ResQ provides results within seconds at the touch of a button. Intuitive, smartphone-inspired QuickDetect software uses advanced algorithms and extensive databases to identify the sample (pure or mixture) and presents the user with a simple ‘Threat / No Threat” reading and relevant NFPA hazard information that can be used to guide the response effort.
Threat recipe alerts with 4C Technology
Progeny ResQ now has the ability to monitor individually identified chemicals that could possibly be used in combinations as precursors to create an ever more hazardous situation – such as the making of explosives or illicit drugs – with 4C Technology. Often a first responder is required to know these vast recipes or have an immediate ability to verify with an off-site expert. This can cause unnecessary delays. Progeny ResQ can now foresee a potentially more dangerous threat and warn the user automatically.
The Progeny ResQ handheld chemical analyzer is the only handheld 1064nm-based Raman unit that has passed rigorous testing to the United States Military Standard 810-G and IP 68. Progeny ResQ can be operated using one hand with its touch-screen or controlled by the large, hard press buttons that can be felt through several layers of gloves. What’s more, Progeny ResQ handheld Raman chemical analyzer has an embedded 5mp camera for sample or environment image capture that can be attached to an analysis report.
