Baltic Scientific Instruments (BSI) was established in 1994 on the basis of Riga Research and Development Institute for Radio-Isotope Apparatus (RNIIRP, est.1966), which belonged to the Ministry for Atomic Energy of the former Soviet Union. 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 of the Soviet Union. 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. Its 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 has mastered the most demanding quality standards in each market where we have chosen to compete. See our Quality Policy.
BSI is headquartered in Riga, Latvia, one of the most livable cities in Europe with an exceptional cultural life, attractive homes, good schools and within a short drive of rural Latvia as well as some of the finest beaches in Northern Europe. Riga has been called the culture capital of Europe and has been featured as a prime tourist destination. For more information about their location.
