Germany Geiger Counter Suppliers Run Out After Nuclear Fear

German Geiger counter suppliers including Conrad Electronic SE have sold out of the devices after demand from private and industrial customers rose because earthquakes in Japan damaged nuclear power stations.

Conrad Electronic, a German consumer and office electronics retailer, has sold out of Geiger counters, spokeswoman Christina Bauroth said by telephone from the company’s Hirschau headquarters. The retailer, which has an online business and operates 26 stores in Germany, is trying to get new devices by the middle of April, she said.
