It is not uncommon to observe radioactive sources in freight vehicles. Some accidents, related to radioactive material flows management, have been recently recorded worldwide, causing the spread of nuclear material, sometimes in manufactured products. These accidents have serious economic, environmental and human consequences, including several cases of death.
Designed in France, Italy and Germany, the new SaphyGATE G50 and G100 portal monitors incorporate high-performance detectors. Vehicles to be checked pass between the detectors, installed in pillars. The readings obtained by the detectors are analyzed in real time by the processing system on the control station. To obtain the most accurate possible readings, Bertin developed an innovative algorithm, designed to compensate the radioactive background attenuation induced by the vehicle driving through.
The ergonomics of the SaphyGATE G control station was engineered in collaboration with Bertin ergonomics experts. The system can be easily operated and supervised by site personnel after a short training period. Suitable for all types of climatic conditions, the SaphyGATE G50 and G100 can be used for the purposes of metallurgical, recycling and border control installations, and hospital and nuclear infrastructure.
“We have been developing the SaphyGATE G for several years and our portal monitors are among the top-ranking solutions on the market,” points out Bruno Vallayer, Vice President Marketing & Sales at Bertin. “On top of their radiation measuring performances, SaphyGATE G portal monitors comply with the requirements of one of the toughest international standards, IEC62022. This places the SaphyGATE G at the industry’s cutting edge. Our international ambitions for this solution have already been confirmed by our first customer orders.”

175 Million Europeans Have Sleep Apnoea, Highlighting Scale of Global Health Crisis18.9.2018 13:05 | Pressemelding
Roughly 175 million Europeans have obstructive sleep apnoea, according to a late-breaking abstract presented by ResMed today at the European Respiratory Society’s annual ERS Congress in Paris. Leading researchers estimate 90 million Europeans have moderate to severe sleep apnoea, meaning they experience at least 15 breathing events an hour during sleep. These statistics are based on the latest scoring rules for determining one’s apnoea–hypopnoea index (AASM 2012) and are connected with a 16-country study announced in May 2018 that revealed an estimated 936 million people worldwide have sleep apnoea, a chronic sleep-disordered breathing condition associated with increased risk of mortality and reduced quality of life. The new global prevalence is nearly tenfold higher than the previous one – 100 million – estimated by the World Health Organization in 2007. European countries with the highest prevalence are: Russia, 40 million Germany, 26 million France, 24 million Ukraine, 13 million Sp
