Leading the Industry in CBRN Technology

Since 1990, Research International, Inc. has been at the forefront of CBRNe technology and innovation. Located near Seattle in the city of Monroe, Washington, Research International is based in an 18,000 square-foot facility supporting manufacturing and R&D, with a team of dedicated engineers and scientists specializing in CBRNe technology.

Our focus areas include sensors and instrumentation for measuring chemical, biological, and physical parameters, with over 20 years of experience designing and manufacturing discrete sensor devices and integrated CBRNe systems. Our primary focus is equipment for worldwide counter-terrorism efforts, ranging from handheld sampling and detection equipment to large monitoring systems for mail threat screening and public infrastructure protection.

We specialize in contract research and development, with particular expertise in the following areas:

Development of new and innovative optical chemical, biological, and other parameter sensors
Micromachining and microfluidics in developing advanced products
Miniature rechargeable battery technology
Developing and implementing software to operate instruments and integrate CBRNe systems
Extensive microparticle air sampling capability to collect biological and radiological samples from the air
Advanced technology to manage airflows in air samplers, detectors, and CBRNe systems to insure agents are reliably detected by installed sensors
