Pendar X10

Breakthrough, short-range standoff Raman chemical ID for EOD, HAZMAT, Narcotics, Forensics, and more.


At a standoff distance of up to 3 feet, Pendar X10 is a portable handheld Raman spectrometer that enables rapid identification of hazardous chemicals including highly fluorescent, dark, and sensitive materials. By increasing measurement distance and strongly reducing the risks of laser-induced explosion and eye damage, Pendar X10 offers new levels of safety, accuracy, and speed in the field.
