Nuclear and radiological risks are obviously a reality in today`s world, and anti-terrorism has become an absolute priority for homeland and border security.
Alert and detection mechanisms are fundamental to current protection policies: we must be capable of preventing the illegal traffic of radioactive sources through border controls, and measuring gamma radiation in the environment if a malevolent act is committed.
Saphymo meets homeland security and Emergency preparadness by proposing dosimeters and survey meters for both preventive and response purposes, enabling first responders to assess the character of radiological incidents.
Border controls are performed using pedestrian and vehicle access control portals - Saphymo is a European leader in this field.
Saphymo`s exhaustive range of reliable and high-performance products is fully adapted to the fight against CBRN terrorism and covers every conceivable situation.
Deterrence is the cornerstone of Defense, reflected in today`s nuclear military vehicles (submarines, aircraft carriers, aircraft, etc.) and sensitive sites.
Defense calls on Saphymo`s exhaustive product range to secure its personnel and equipment and shoulder the emergency services in case of a CBRN threat.
All military units are required to be fitted out with detection and decontamination devices, and possess the special expertise needed to manage exceptional events. Nuclear military sites must also be equipped with specialist monitoring devices.
Dosimetry, survey meters, access control, Radiation Monitoring Systems, environmental monitoring networks and numerous other solutions offer valuable decision-aid tools, providing fast and accurate information and easier situation assessment.
The nuclear industry, including power plants, research centers and fuel cycle specialists are obliged by law to protect their staff, local populations, the environment and the processes they employ.
With this in mind, Saphymo has developed a full range of dedicated products and systems, and plays a major role in radiation protection and ionizing radiation monitoring in both France and on an international scale.
Saphymo constantly strives to satisfy safety requirements to the full, reinforce its technological know-how in the management of complex systems and anticipate customer needs, and offers adapted solutions in the fields of operational dosimetry, Radiation Monitoring Systems, contamination control, access control, environmental protection and survey meters.
Saphymo also offers a broad panel of services intended to maintain its products in operational condition.
Medicine and Research laboratories
The medical industry uses radioactivity to explore and heal the human body. In pharmaceutical laboratories, nuclear medicine practitioners and patients alike are exposed to ionizing radiation to various extents. These internal and external doses, generated by radiotherapy, scintigraphy and sealed or unsealed sources, require special precautions.
Saphymo designs and manufactures various dose monitoring solutions, ranging from individual radiation protection to process and waste control.
Research labs using accelerators or reactors can also rely on Saphymo’s ability to meet safety requirements by providing highly technical, custom-made devices suitable for monitoring both very low and very high activity.
The Saphymo product ranges, from Radiation Monitoring Systems developed from A-Z by Saphymo to Survey meters and dosimetry, meet medical and research requirements to the full.
