Mirion Technologies Provides Advanced Area Radiation Detection and Identification Monitors to the Italian Civil Defense Authority

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The Mirion Technologies Health Physics Division announced it has delivered SPIR Detect area radiation monitors to the Italian Civil Defense Authority. These highly sensitive monitors are easy to deploy and can be installed permanently in a location or used as portable radiological monitors.
