The article reports on the launch of VeriRAD, a low-cost variant of the VeriSpreader crane-mounted system by VeriTainer Corp. capable of detecting highly radioactive gamma-ray sources and contaminated scrap metal. VeriTainer developed VeriRAD after an incident wherein a container arrived in Genoa, Italy was found to be radioactive after being idle for several days. According to Joe Alioto, vice president of Sales for VeriTainer, VeriRAD was developed to determine whether a container contaminated with radiation is safe for people or too dangerous.
