Personal Radiation Detectors (PRD's)


LAURUS Systems offers many types of radiation detection devices. There is no single device that can detect and monitor all kinds of radiation and there is no one instrument that can be used in all situations. One of the more versatile instruments available however is the Personal Radiation Detector, or PRD.


A Personal Radiation Detector (PRD) is designed to detect, and alert a minimally trained wearer to the presence of, small increases in the levels of ionizing radiation. The wearer should be able to use the PRD effectively while performing other tasks. The PRD should not require the attention of the wearer until it alarms. It enables the user to locate the source of the radiation and maintain a safe distance with little or no intrusion or disruption of civilian activities.


While a PRD is not an accurate radiation dosimeter, there are models that will calculate and maintain exposure over time. It is also not typically considered to be a Radio Isotope Identification Device (RIID), but there are a number of small devices that are considered Spectroscopic PRDís. PRDís small size and weight considerations are generally what limit functionality when compared to devices that employ larger detectors.


Mini Rad-DX Advanced PRD

Mini Rad-DX



The Mini Rad-DX The Mini Rad-DX offers the exclusive SensorNet mesh network as well as the ability to be monitored system wide via WIFI to a central location, emailing or texting alerts to critical personnel. The Mini Rad-DX has ability to display dose rates in mR/Hr or Sv/Hr units. There is also the option for the Mini Rad-DX to display in the familiar 1-9 intensity level. Several gigabytes of data and events can be stored before the memory rolls over. The data is downloaded completely or administrators can choose significant events, i.e. where the PRD actually received a Ďhit.í

Mini Rad-D


The Mini Rad-D is a rugged, all-weather radiation detector thatís small enough to wear on a belt yet powerful enough to quickly locate low- level radioactive sources. Even among crowds of thousands of people or warehouses with thousands of packages. Designed to discreetly monitor any environment without intrusion or disruption of civilian activities, the Mini Rad-D can be set to notify the user by vibration or audible alarm whenever radiation exceeds natural background levels. The Mini Rad-D is as easy to use as a flashlight. And requires just about as much training. It has a single switch that puts it into audible alarm mode, vibrate alarm mode, or turns it off.

The characteristic features of this versatile pocket meter are the small size, the ease and flexibility of operation and superior measurement performance, which is provided by the use of sophisticated low power technology. Fully automated self-diagnostics minimize required maintenance.   All essential functions are easily accessed even while wearing protective gloves. The top-mounted alarm-LED can be seen while the instrument is worn in a belt-holster. A built-in vibrator and an earphone-output provide silent alarming or use in very noisy environment.

DoseRAE Pro



The DoseRAE Pro is a rugged, compact, direct-reading and alarming electronic personal radiation detector and dosimeter. It uses a diode and a scintillation crystal to detect X- ray and gamma radiation, and provides real-time monitoring of personal dose and dose-rate allowing immediate action to reduce personal radiation exposure.

With the highest detector resolution available in a pager-sized device, the NEW nanoRaiderô virtually eliminates the false alarms and false positives that are so common to personal radiation detectors.  With both detection and identification capabilities available in a single, rugged device, those on the front lines of homeland security can trust the nanoRaider to make their job easier. 


More Information





The microRaiderô is a state-of-the-art Spectroscopic Personal Radiation Detector (SPRD) with solid state, CZT detectors. It combines the capabilities of a Personal Radiation Detector (PRD) with the radionuclide identification capabilities of a Radio-Isotope Identification Detector (RIID) into one conveniently small package. The microRaider provides great sensitivity along with real-time, accurate radionuclide identification.

Gamma RAE II R



The GammaRAE II R is a gamma radiation detector and full-range dosimeter in a single instrument. Designed specifically to meet the needs of first responders, it has the rapid response of a detector and the accurate dose measurement of a dosimeter.

More Information

Neutron RAE II


The intrinsically safe and immersible NeutronRAE II is the first personal radiation detector to provide rapid detection of both gamma and neutron radiation sources even in potentially flammable environments.  Certified intrinsically safe and water immersible for chemical decontamination purposes, the NeutronRAE II can be safely used in more environments than any other personal gamma and neutron radiation detector.

1703 GN


The PM-1703GN is a unique gamma-neutron personal radiation detectors for the search and detection of the radioactive and nuclear materials including nuclear weapons. The detectors measure simultaneously gamma and neutron radiation levels and alert a user if the radiation levels exceed the preset thresholds.

More Information  



1703 M/MA


The PM-1703 M/MA is a tiny personal radiation detectors designed to detect and locate the minimum amounts of the radioactive and nuclear materials. The instrument provides two operating modes: search for the gamma radiation sources and evaluation of the radiation level in mSv/h or mR/h.
