Berkeley Nucleonics Corp. (BNC) has added two new instruments to its comprehensive line of advanced personal radiation detectors. These highly sensitive radiation monitors discreetly detect and measure gamma radiation then alert the operator through a vibration or audible alarm. They are the nukeALERT II 1703M Personal Radiation Detector (PRD) and the palmRAD 1621M Dosimeter. Useful for application in emergency response, border patrol, homeland security, and counter-terrorism, these devices are simple to understand and operate. In the event of a radiological emergency, first response teams equipped with these instruments can monitor a wide area for radiological hot zones by simply clipping the unit to their duty belts and following normal response procedures.
