A Scanalyzer is a powerful analytical tool commonly used by doctors, engineers and scientists who work in the field. Slightly smaller than a standard briefcase the scanalyzer can accept a small sample of the materiel the user wishes to analyze and after several minutes produce a full report on it. This report will include a host of data such as the substance's elemental and molecular components, it's flash and melting points, its conductivity and radioactivity.
