Our Comments:

This meter is capable of measuring beta and gamma radiation, as well as alpha radiation and x-rays.

It is a rather hefty unit, measuring 5.625 x 3.25 x 1.367 inches, but it is robust – designed for serious work.

The PRM-8000 monitors Average, Minimum and Maximum dose rates in microRoentgen/hour, milleRoentgen/hour, microSievert/hour, Counts Per Second or Counts Per Minute.

Claimed battery life is outstanding – over 6-years under normal conditions from a single, readily available 9-volt lithium battery that is user-installable.

Designed by Mazur Instruments and manufactured in the USA, the PRM-8000 Geiger counter and nuclear radiation monitor features support for headphones, external speakers, external power and USB data exchange (using optional USB adapter cable).

Amazon customer reviews are very complimentary.



This is one meter I wouldn’t mind sharing!
