Bertin Instruments’ expertise

For many years, Bertin has been working in the key sector of Defense and Security by developing solutions for optronic surveillance and early warning CBRN threat detection. With the acquisition of Saphymo in 2015, Bertin is now the only French industrialist to offer a full range of solutions for the detection and identification of Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear threats.
The Second Sight standoff gas leak detector has been adapted to industrial Safety.

Bertin Instruments is also providing a wide range of radiation monitoring devices (Radon professional monitoring, Health Physics, Radiation portal monitors and Environmental monitoring systems).

Finally, strong of its expertise in laboratory equipment with Precellys tissue homogenizer, Bertin Instruments launches the new generation of cell imager: InCellis Smart Cell Imaging system. This smart digital microscope is providing embedded cell culture application for confluency and transfection efficiency automatic calculation.
