A French company specialized in the electronic design of scientific instrumentation manufactures global solutions in the field of radioprotection. The company has developed gamma rays measuring instruments based on specific probes and spectrometers. These instruments stem from technology transfer from the Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA in French). The company is looking for distributors for its international deployment.
The protection of people against the dangers of ionizing radiation (or radioprotection) is a major issue for many countries. The company has developed adapted solutions to the threat of radioprotection by designing devices detecting and analysing nuclear radiations. As well as manufacturing the measuring intruments, the company also provides compliance studies and installation/maintenance services. In 2011, the company benefited from exclusive concessions of two patented licenses from the Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (or CEA in French), the French government-funded research organisation in the areas of defense, security, energy,… The company has designed instruments which measure gamma rays based on a probe and on a spectrometer equipped with a detector of cadmium-zinc-telluride crystals. These instruments are innovative for their rapid measuring of gamma-ray levels and for their efficient radio-isotope identification. This capacity to propose fully integrated, user-friendly products which are compliant with existing devices allows the company to be competitive on various markets such as: Nuclear safety, nuclear waste management, radiological control, homeland security, industrial and environmental detection, medical monitoring. The company is looking for distributors or specialized local retailers
