Billerica, MA, United States, 2020/11/20 - Today, Bruker announced the launch of the novel RAPIDplus (mod 4) Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) based stand-off detector for Chemical Warfare Agents (CWA) and Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TIC) - Bruker.com. NASDAQ: BRKR
RAPIDplus (mod 4) allows automated, 24/7 monitoring of chemical hazards at distances up to 5 km. It is specifically designed for maritime, coastal, and shipboard environments which makes this instrument unique.
RAPIDplus (mod 4) is based on the field-proven FTIR technology used in the widely deployed RAPIDplus (mod 3). The instrument has been designed with advanced materials selected to withstand harsh maritime environments, with enhanced sealing and a clear focus on maintainability. Our aim was to achieve customer driven needs while maintaining the superior analytical performance of our technology.
RAPIDplus (mod 4) is the first stand-off detector especially designed for maritime environments. The system has been extensively tested against the pertinent military and environmental standards associated with a corrosive environment and has succesfully demonstrated its superior capabilities in this challenging application.
The RAPIDplus (mod 4) is the first chemical stand-off detector designed for maritime applications including the navy, coast guard, port security, and more. We are convinced that the combination of proven Bruker stand-off technology tailored for this application will provide the same high level of reliability, performance and protection that is expected by all of our customers across the globe.” said Dr.-Ing. Armin Gembus, Vice President Business Area Gas Raman and Trace Detection.
