Many variables should be factored prior to any organisation making a purchase decision. The total cost of ownership involves more than just outright decision based on total cost of equipment.

Evaluation should include the cost of consumables, wear and tear, consideration regarding the number of charged detectors required within continuous shifts, durability, the cost of gas consumption, and productivity associated with reporting, training and certification.
