Kromek announced as winner – R&D 100 Awards


Kromek is honoured to be a winner at the 2020 R&D 100 Awards in the Software/Services category. The award is in recognition of our latest M2R2 CLLBC Multimode Radioisotope Identification Detector (RIID), the D5 RIID.

The R&D 100 Awards, held by R&D Magazine, is a renowned worldwide competition that honours great R&D pioneers and their revolutionary ideas in science and technology. Now in its 58th year, the 2020 awards received entries from 19 countries/regions with the judging panel including nearly 50 well-respected industry professionals from across the globe.

The D5 RIID is the first RIID to use a single crystal to natively achieve best-in-class gamma resolution (and figure of merit) while simultaneously detecting neutrons. This enables the device to be the smallest and lightest of its kind and it is the only medium resolution RIID to offer real-time isotope identification.

Kromek is hosting a webinar to launch the D5 RIID on at 1.00pm GMT on 11 November 2020. Attendees can get a full product overview, features and application use, as well as have the chance to ask the product manager questions about the product. To attend the webinar, please register here:

Dr Arnab Basu, CEO of Kromek, said: “We are delighted to have received this well-respected global award in recognition of our new D5 RIID. This product truly sets a new benchmark in radioisotope identification. It also is an honour to have been selected from a worldwide pool of entries and to be placed alongside leading research laboratories from academic and governmental institutions as well as global OEMs. This award is a reflection of the innovation and skillset of our team and I thank them for their dedication. Congratulations to all the winners for their well-deserved success!”
