The MX-10 Digital particle camera is a state-of-the-art educational toolkit for demonstrating radiation and analyzing radioactive sources.

MX-10 comes along with the powerful Pixelman© software which offers interfaces both for advanced particle experts as well as for high school teachers and students.


  • instant display – unlike traditional quantum detectors (Geiger–Müller tubes, scintillators) , this device is virtually a digital radiation video camera
  • clear recognition of particles - α, β, γ, MIP particles
    (e.g. muons from cosmic rays)
  • easy-to-use in classroom experiments
