Chemical, Trace Detection, Explosives and Narcotics

Chemical detection systems are generally used to sense and identify chemical agents in air, soil, or water. Law enforcement officers, industrial work sites, and the military may use different types of detection systems to alert personnel to the existence of harmful or toxic substances. Detection and identification of chemical agents involved in any hazardous material (Hazmat) incident is vital to the protection of first responders and emergency medical personnel at local medical facilities as well as to the effective treatment of casualties. Industrial work sites may use stationary detectors in specific areas, hand held devices, or chemical detection systems worn by employees.

For the purpose of public safety, airports and other public areas may employ the use of portal detectors that monitor for possible explosives or narcotic chemicals. In crime scene investigations, law enforcement officers might use hand held devices that take air samples and analyze them for the existence of particular substances. The tracers may detect air particles containing explosives, like nitroglycerin, or narcotic substances, such as marijuana and methamphetamines. The military commonly use chemical warfare agent detectors. Chemical detection systems can alert personnel to the presence of gaseous, liquid, or solid chemicals that include blistering agents, nerve gas, and other substances designed to kill or cause serious injury.

Agentase C2 Chemical Agent Disclosure Spray

Agentase C2 Chemical Agent Disclosure Spray

Excerpt - The FLIR Agentase C2 agent disclosure spray is the most sensitive point detector for chemical nerve agents (G- & V-series) and sulfur mustard (HD). It uses colorimetric technology to reveal the exact location of Chemical Warfare Agent (CWA) contamination on a surface at sub-microgram (trace) levels within five minutes. Once applied to a surface, the standard aqueous spray changes color from yellow to red to indicate the presence of a CWA threat. The color change reveals the exact location of the agent contamination, making the invisible threat visible. An optional fluorescent additive enhances the visual response when used in poor lighting conditions with an ultraviolet (UV) light. Easy to use Confidence Check Cards are available to verify reconstituted spray is operational and performing according to specifications.
