The Thermo Scientific FirstDefender RMX unit is the next generation Raman instrument for rapid, accurate identification of unknown chemicals including explosives, narcotics, toxic industrial chemicals, precursors and more. Designed for flexible use modes, the FirstDefender RMX device can be used as a handheld instrument with the fixed probe, through an integrated vial mode, or mounted to select tactical robots via an integration kit.
The FirstDefender RMX unit returns results up to 5 times faster than the first generation Raman instrument, meeting the demanding requirements of elite military personnel and civilian first responders. The device offers military organizations, hazmat teams, bomb squads and law enforcement personnel a unique tool for hazmat response and the fight against the explosives threat.
Responder and community safety are critical when analyzing potentially hazardous materials. The Thermo Scientific FirstDefender RMX instrument can be used as a handheld instrument or integrated onto a tactical robot, providing military and civilian first responders more flexibility and increased safety.
