Baltic Scientific Instruments (BSI) was established in 1994 on the basis of the Riga Research and Development Institute for Radio-Isotope Apparatus (RNIIRP, est.1966). RNIIRP had Union-wide responsibility for the development of instruments for radiation detection and measurement for the atomic energy industry, mining, oil and gas industries, space and military applications. RNIIRP developed a broad range of products, and the highest level of technical knowledge and skills to meet the most sophisticated technological demands. These are the foundations of the capabilities that BSI now brings to global markets.
Since its founding as a private enterprise, BSI has specialized in the development and fabrication of devices for spectrometric analysis based on semiconductor and scintillation radiation detectors. Our products are applied in multiple industries: nuclear power; environmental monitoring; geophysics and the mining industry; medicine and healthcare; research including space sciences; security systems and customs control; and other spheres. To succeed in global markets for radiation detection and analysis equipment BSI was certified to ISO 9001:2000 by TUV Nord Baltik in September 2007 and now every year confirms its certification
BSI occupies a six-floor building of 3300 m2 total area. On the 1st (ground) floor there is a mechanical production site. The 2nd floor houses the Vacuum Cryogenics department and Spectrometry Department; 3d floor – the Department of Semiconductor Detectors; 4th floor – Training Room; Administration, including finance Department and Department of sales and marketing; 5th floor – Designer bureau; 6th floor – Department of Electronics and X-ray Fluorescence Analyses Department.
