The methods that Mass Spec has developed for the trace detection of substances, including illicit drugs have been successfully transferred to the rapid and reliable detection of trace explosives.
In cases where such items have been seized, Mass Spec can provide a cost effective, reliable and efficient trace explosives analysis service. Mass Spec has developed innovative forensic techniques that enable the rapid, simultaneous detection of a range of explosives on a variety of items and surfaces without any requirements for sample preparation, or damage to the exhibit.
But recognising that one of the main applications for explosives detection is outside of the lab and closer to the source, Mass Spec has developed its SCENTINEL® mobile trace detection system. Available with a variety of interchangeable sampling units:
SkyMarshal automated boarding pass analyser is able to process 1000 samples an hour.
A similar sampler for Train/Metro tickets is able to process 1600 samples an hour.
Scentinel has been independently proven to be the fastest, most reliable trace explosives detection system available.
