A high performance real-time X-ray inspection system designed for inspection of mail letters and packages.

The MailScope-PS is an x-ray microscope scanning station, with motorized positioner, for the x-ray detection of elusive potential threats such as powders, plastic explosives, drugs and micro-circuitry.

For the first time, small quantities of materials such as powders, granules, plastic explosives and very fine wires can be detected inside envelopes and parcels. MXRA x-ray technology, developed by Glenbrook, makes it possible. With MXRA, users can perform x-ray screening at 10 times or more the resolution of conventional systems and, at the same time, magnify a particular area of an object up to 20 times. In effect, the MXRA camera acts as a real-time “x-ray microscope.”
