The IMI Inspector Alert is one of our most popular instruments. It has become known as one of the most reliable, trustworthy and compact hand held instruments for detecting contamination on surfaces and for general purpose use. It also has a reputation for ease of use, and ease of understanding.
We built the first Inspector Geiger Counter here at our Sebastopol lab back in 1989. Since then the Inspector name has become associated with a class of instruments that are handheld and utilize the “pancake” style GM sensor. Instruments based on the pancake detector were previously only packaged in lunch box sized enclosures. Today there are a few companies that make this type of instrument.
