Why choose Intercept?

Buy with Federal Funds

Tek84 Intercept is an ideal purchase for your “American Rescue Plan” funding. One product solves two problems: detecting concealed threats while protecting against COVID‑19 transmission.


Nothing Hides from Intercept

X-ray imaging reveals both metallic and non-metallic threats, including weapons, drugs, cell phones and other contraband. Each subject is screened from below their feet to above their head, showing objects under their clothing and within their body.


Fast Screening – No Touching

One staff member can screen up to 180 subjects per hour, while maintaining the COVID-safe distance of 6 feet between people. An FDA approved thermal camera measures the temperature of each inmate, providing an early indication of COVID-19 and other infections.


A typical image from Intercept on the lowest setting, 25 uRem. Items: teeth fillings, neck chain, nonmetallic object in shoe heal, ring, and zipper. Intercept can operate at up to 200 uRem for even better image quality.

Next Generation Inmate Screening

Easy to use – Widely Accepted

More than 2,000 jails, prisons and detention facilities use x‐ray body scanners to search inmates. The subject simply stands on the Intercept stationary platform for a quick 3.8 second scan. Instantly, a detailed x‐ray image appears on the high‐resolution monitor, showing objects under the clothing and within body cavities.

Extremely Safe – Regulated by the FDA

Airport body scanners only detect items hidden under the clothing, not within the body. Intercept is different, transmitting a weak x‐ray beam completely through the subject. The scanned images appear similar to medical exams, but only require about 1% of the x‐ray level. Federal safety standards allow each person to be screened up to 1,000 times per year on the lowest setting, allowing daily use. Intercept’s highest setting produces better images, with 125 scans per year allowed.

Better Images, Lower Dose, No Distortion

Intercept’s scanning beam penetrates directly from back to front. This is the shortest distance through the body, about 11 inches in thickness. In contrast, other products scan at an angle, requiring the beam to pass through about 16 inches of tissue. This 5 inches of extra thickness has a devastating effect on image quality and dose, making a 140 lbs person look like 300 lbs!

Just as important, this also means that Intercept’s images have no distortion; the belly button appears directly in front of the small of the back. With angled x-ray scanning, the belly button appears between the shoulder blades.

Patented technology: Vertical Scanning

Intercept is a true breakthrough in body scanners, scanning the person vertically instead of horizontally. The scanning beam (which is horizontal) starts below the feet and moves vertically upward to above the head. This vertical scanning provides revolutionary benefits over all other approaches:

The person remains stationary (not standing on a moving conveyer belt or platform)

A quick 3.8 second scan (not 7‐15 seconds)

Ultra‐small footprint, only 34" x 72" (not 9' x 9' )

With built in wheels, Intercept easily passes
through doorways as small as 35" x 80"

Quick setup; a few hours (not a few days)

Better image quality; lower x‐ray dose

No image distortion, objects appear in the
image at the same location as on the body

Quick, Convenient, Reliable

Ultra-Small Footprint

Intercept is compact, requiring a floor space of only 34″ x 72″. Other body scanners require up to three times this area. The built‐in wheels and removable roof makes installation & relocation quick and easy.

Shipped Fully Assembled

Intercept is shipped fully assembled and moved through doorways as small as 35″ wide and 80″ high. Other body scanners are shipped on multiple pallets and built on site over several days.

Made in the USA

Intercept is the only inmate body scanner made in the USA. Tek84’s employees are your friends, relatives and neighbors. Competing body scanners are made in China, Belarus, Brazil, and Western Europe.

Tek84 develops and manufactures high‐technology security products for screening and surveillance. For over three decades we have pioneered the use of ultra‐low‐dose x‐ray imaging. Our products rapidly & safely screen for weapons, explosives, drugs, and other contraband. Our engineers created the world’s first body scanner (1991); highest resolution surveillance camera (2001); the first drive‐through car bomb detection portal (2009); and Intercept, the first inmate scanner with vertical scanning technology (2018)
