The power of Gemini.

When elite military forces and first responders need to quickly and safely assess a hazardous situation, they need rugged, compact and easy-to-use instruments for better and fast decision-making. Raman and FTIR spectroscopy are the two leading chemical identification technologies for field-based analysis, widely deployed for the aforementioned applications. Thermo Fisher Scientific's Thermo Scientific Gemini analyzer is the first handheld analyzer that combines the two technologies into one instrument that's smaller and lighter than two single-technology instruments. Used in hazardous environments, the technology features built-in safety controls including: a high-contrast and resistive touchscreen, making it easier for users to operate; scan assist, which guides users to select the appropriate technology; and a motorized anvil that enables Raman and an industry-first FTIR scan delay for increased safety. The analyzer requires minimal training for proficiency with clear results that eliminate subjective user interpretation.
