Rigaku ResQ CQL offers first responders, border protection, and law enforcement with an advanced method for identifying potential threats in an improved tactical form factor, thus improving functionality particularly in high stress environments. By combining the 1064 nm Raman advantage with improved ergonomics and sample presentation, ResQ CQL makes it even easier to perform chemical analysis of powders, liquids, gels, mixtures and more.


Identify More

The ResQ CQL includes a standard library of over 13,000 Raman-active chemicals – including explosives, chemical warfare agents (CWAs) precursors, hazardous chemicals, narcotics, cutting agents, pesticides, steroids and more – as well as the added capabilities to upgrade, transfer, and translate entries. The utilization of 1064 nm Raman excitation provides users with the ability to identify more with reduced fluorescence interference – common to older generation models.

Available Accessories

For even more convenience, various accessories are available to fit most sampling needs. These will assist when analyzing various forms of a substance, as well as keep the user safe from a potentially hazardous material

  • Adjustable nose
  • Vial adaptor
  • Bottle adaptor
  • Tablet adaptor
  • Periscope adaptor
  • Sampling test stand
Industry Certifications/Compliance
