The MXRA is also extremely easy-to-use and weighs only 60 pounds. The system is unique because it delivers a level of detail and sensitivity never seen before in the security industry. The system's also has the ability to provide variable magnifications between 7X-40X. When combined with it's ultra-high sensitivity, it makes the MXRA, uniquely suited for mail-content analysis.
