Why Choose Intercept?

Buy with Federal Funds

The Tek84 Intercept scanner 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 Intercept image using the lowest setting, 25 uRem. Intercept can operate at up to 200 uRem for even better image quality.

Items detected: Teeth fillings, neck chain, nonmetallic object in shoe heal, ring, and zipper.

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. The Intercept scanner is different. It also detects items within the body by transmitting a weak x‐ray beam completely through the subject. Scanned images appear similar to medical exams, yet 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. The Intercept scanner’s highest setting produces better images and allows 125 scans per year.

Better Images, Lower Dose, No Distortion

The Intercept scanning beam penetrates directly from back to front. This uses the shortest distance through the body, about 11 inches in thickness. In contrast, other products scan at an angle, which requires the beam to pass through about 16 inches of tissue. The extra 5 inches of thickness has a devastating effect on image quality and the dose required. Plus, angled scans make a 140 lbs person look like 300 lbs!

The Intercept horizontal beam also prevents image 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 scanner technology, scanning the person vertically instead of horizontally. The scanning beam starts below the feet and moves vertically upward to above the head. This vertical scanning provides revolutionary benefits over all other approaches:

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


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

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

Better image quality; lower x‐ray dose

Person remains stationary
(does not stand on a moving conveyer belt or platform)

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

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

The Tek84 Intercept scanner detects concealed threats plus reduces COVID transmissions, making it an ideal purchase for your American Rescue Plan funding. One staff member can screen up to 180 subjects per hour while maintaining the COVID‐safe distance of 6 feet. An FDA approved thermal camera measures the body temperature of each inmate to provide an early indication of COVID‐19 and other infections.

Quick, Convenient, Reliable

Ultra-Small Footprint

The Intercept scanner 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 and relocation quick and easy.

Shipped Fully Assembled

The Intercept scanner 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 body scanner made in the USA. Tek84 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 and 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).
