REED R8008 Radiation Meter

Used for the detection of gamma radiation, X-Rays, and alpha and beta particles

This is a gaseous ionization detector that uses the Townsend avalanche phenomenon to produce an easily detectable electronic pulse from as little as a single ionising event due to a radiation particle.


  • Monitors the environment to alert users to the presence of radioactive material
  • Energy compensated Geiger Mueller detector
  • Detects Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and X-radiation
  • Automatic selection of measurement range
  • Adjustable indication of average time
  • Accumulation of radiation detection values and conversions between different measurement units
  • Pulse counting function
  • User-adjustable alert levels with audio/visual alarm indicators
  • Can store 4000 groups of data internally
  • Interfaces to a computer via Bluetooth
  • LCD display with numerical and bar-graph indicator and backlight
  • Detects radiation leaks; Checks for contamination; Finds radioactive items in the workplace or home; Checks for radioactive deposits in the ground; Checks for X-ray scatter; Locates spill and lost materials
