Thermo Fisher Scientific: X-ray detection system

The NextGuard X-ray Detection System from Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. is an affordable, yet sophisticated and easy-to-use X-ray detection platform that combines three key attributes—performance, simplicity-of-use and price point—to make X-ray product detection more affordable for food, pharmaceutical, and other applications.

According to Thermo Fisher testing, the NextGuard offers up to 50% better detection sensitivity than Thermo Fisher’s previous value-based X-ray system, the EZx. The system is designed to be reliable, easy-to-install, and compact (one meter long). It comes equipped with intuitive software.

The NextGuard features:  multiple contaminant detection algorithms to increase detection probability; ability to modify, test and change detection parameters on the fly; QA check mode, automating operator audits and record keeping; multiple available X-ray powers with low-cost extended warranties; wraparound detector intended to reduce “blind spots”; built-in internet remote support hardware and software; easily removable conveyor facilitating quick cleaning and service; detector diagnostics warn when preventative maintenance is needed; on-machine reject image storage for up to 90 days.

The series’ first model, the NextGuard C330, is designed for packaged product contaminant detection, and complements the mid- and high-end Thermo Scientific Xpert and POWERx X-ray inspection systems.
