FirstDefender® RMX is Thermo Scientific’s next generation Raman instrument for rapid, accurate identification of unknown chemicals directly in the field. Designed for flexible use modes, FirstDefender RMX can be used as a handheld instrument with the fixed probe, through an integrated vial mode, or can be mounted to select tactical robots via the integrated RS232 port and an integration kit.


• Fast, accurate identification. Based on Raman spectroscopy, quickly identifies unknown solid and liquid chemicals down range.

•Automatic mixture analysis. Sophisticated chemometric algorithms automatically determine presence of mixed and contaminated chemicals.

• Flexible use modes. Handheld use with fixed probe or vial, or easily connected to a tactical robot through integrated RS232 port for universal control.

• Built for field use. Designed for use down range with a tough form factor, quick decontamination and easy operation in bulky protective gear. MIL-STD 810G and IP67 certified.
