Radiation Area Monitor Comparison

Radiation Area Monitors can offer a wide range of protection against potential radiation exposure in your laboratory or facility. In order to find the best model for your application, we’ve included a comparison table below. Most of our Radiation Area Monitors come with an external probe option to provide flexibility in the install. All of them come with free software to setup text and email alerts and monitor every area monitor on your network. From the more sensitive models our scintillation based models to the general GM applications, we have you covered. Of course, we also have custom probe options available if none of the typical configurations don’t meet your needs. Just tell us about your application and we can recommend the best probe options for your needs.
