ORTEC’s new Detective X Germanium Detector brings your nuclide identification to a higher level.
The detector has a large HPGe crystal and is therefore more sensitive and better able to identify fast and accurate.
The Detective X is also smaller than its predecessors (weighs only 7 kg!) and has the most modern communication capabilities.
