Precision, light weight radiation meters unveiled.

* Two pocket size detectors--the RadEye B20 and RadEye N--are providing a low power answer to pinpointing and measuring radiation. The RadEye B20 is an easy to use contamination meter for alpha, beta, gamma and x-ray radiation. The RadEye N, meanwhile, is a personal neutron radiation detection pager that was crafted for use in industrial environments.

The devices, which are produced by Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. of Oakwood, Ohio, are rugged, light-weight and require low power sources. The RadEye B20, for example, relies on two AAA batteries for up to 500 hours of monitoring operation.
